Pig Zodiac Vessel
This product is currently sold out.
Twelfth in the order of the zodiac cycle. Those born in the year of the pig are known for being diligent and compassionate. This piece is one of twelve zodiac vessels crafted for Abacus Row’s Lunar New Year Shop.
We are thrilled to welcome for a second year a special Lunar New Year Collection from Vietnamese American ceramic artist, Minh Singer. The collection is created with new year customs in mind—small dishes for treats, pedestals for decorative display and offerings of symbolic fruits, incense burned for ancestral offerings, and a very special series of vessels that represent each of the animals from the Chinese/Vietnamese zodiac.
Symbolic colors of red, yellow, orange and gold figure prominently in many of these pieces; they are representations of happiness, prosperity, and good fortune.
Minh’s work invokes notions of mystical souvenirs from a far off memory. Each piece is personal and created with the imperfections of beauty and humanity in mind.
