Liquefy Your Assets

Don't sink into debt! Be sure to store your treasures in this great ship's sinking hull for future discovery and retrieval. This museum-quality bronze bank made by Scott Nelles seems to sink into any flat surface as if it were the chilly north Atlantic, main propeller in the air and smokestacks precariously kissing the sea. The metal is finished with a subtle patina, evoking the industrial feel of the Steam Age. 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."

    Comments about UncommonGoods Titanic Bank:

    This gift was intended for a collecter of banks and a man who has everything,we have over 800+ banks, all to leave to the imagination. He purchases, some are...works of art especially the old metal banks they are my favotite, EXECPT this Titanic bank, it weights a ton and is so georgous,you can see and feel the (grain) of the metal and the brass shines to creat a perfect patina in this detailed work of art. I also own the Angel Bell,which I gave as a present,the person did not like the nude, so I took it back home with me,yeah,yeah! Karen S.

      This is an amazingly heavy and well crafted piece. It is for my Grandson, who loves everything about the story of the Titanic, for Christmas. I know he will be very pleased.

              Makes saving money fun. My 3 year old thinks this bank is a hoot. I tell her the more she saves the heavier the ship will be and will completely sink. She is trying her best to sink the ship. The bank is well crafted, beautifully casted and easy to empty. My daughter and I are happy with our purchase. I really admire the artist's sense of irony and cleaver idea.
