The design may be humble, but we were inspired. This ceramic savings bank is decorated with a hypothetical object of desire: a 21 speed bike. In these days of financial uncertainty, there's something resonant about saving pocket change for one big thing. In this case it's a bike, which is moreover a gift that gives back — in gas savings.
Making one of these would be a great rainy-weekend project. Ours would have a picture of a flat-screen TV on it, which we could place next to our current, ancient and enormous TV. What design would you put on yours?
