When Pigs Fly...

Yeah, we all know the saying, and we're all sick of it! Why can't the nerdy guy get the girl? Why shouldn't the underdog team win? Who said you can't be President? Well, whoever they are, they haven't encountered Scott Nelles' sand-cast copper creation. With expert craftsmanship and sturdy design, it's a reminder that anything's possible - even saving your pennies! Handmade in Michigan.

Scott Nelles works with bronze and aluminum using one of the most time-tested processes in existence: sand casting. This process involves building the object's shape from packed sand and then filling the cavity with molten metal. This process produces a subtle texture that adds to the character of each piece, making them seem handmade yet straight from the machine age.

Nelles' fascination with metal casting and clay sculpting began as a young boy. He began his 30-year career by educating himself at Western Michigan University, Oakland Community College and The Center for Creative Studies.

Of metal, he states, "I have created work in many different media, but I have always been led back to the same conclusion. There is nothing so durable, so inherently endowed with wealth of longevity and quality as metal."

      At first I didn't think the idea of a flying pig would seem so visually attractive...but after buying this, i saw the quality and handiwork put into it, and my friend (it was a gift) love it!!
