You won't find another one of these. In this assemblage sculpture a goofy ceramic snail sits atop a vintage bank shaped like a mailbox. You can tell it's old because it suggests aving pennies (one a day means $3.65 in a year!).

I made the richly textured snail from different colored clay bodies, finished with stains and paints (fired to cone 5). The graphics on the vintage toy mail box are amazing-- a uniformed letter carrier and savings guide in bright red, white, and blue. There's a slot to put your money (or whatever you like- love notes?) and a cork stopper to get out the contents. A hole in the back of the box makes for super easy hanging.

The sculpture measures about 8.25 inches high by 6 inches long by 4 deep.
