Three Little Pigs Join the Eby Farmstead

  • Designed three animal sculptures as a park feature
  • Crafted using details to give a more realistic appearance
  • Built with weather resistant, low-maintenance materials

Challenge

The City of Waterloo wanted to add something unique to the Eby Farmstead in Ontario. We were tasked with creating three different sized pig sculptures to be placed as a feature within the park for passersby to admire.

Solution

To meet the customer's request, we needed to make something that could withstand the harsh cold of the North and constant touching by kids and daily patrons. The pigs were made with glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) for a feature that would last for years of adornment. This material is durable, long-lasting, and earth friendly.

Result

Blending in to their new home, the adorable pig sculptures are sure to add to the charm of this local park. Everyone who visits won't be able to resist stopping to check them out and take a selfie.
