"We believe art belongs in our everyday. At Pig and Fish, we specialize in merging art and function. "
Pig + Fish is a Maine based design studio featuring useful art home decor products by Deb Gill and Nanako O'Donnell. Mimi Lepardo now joins our creative team as our operations manager and brings her years of experience as a realtor who cares deeply about cultivating strong relatiosnhips with her clients. Mimi shares our passion for a creative lifestyle and working with people to build community around living an art filled life.
As lead designer, Deb brings with her a passion for useful art. Prior to starting Pig and Fish, her work was only available through art galleries in Maine + New York. The work was always functional, but large + priced for a select audience. A strong desire to create artful, well designed, + small hand crafted products for the home jump started the launch of our Pig and Fish line. We both firmly believe that art belongs in people’s lives + in their homes - not on a pedestal for a select few.
Pig + Fish products can be enjoyed as "useful art" - work that is not only visual, but also functional. They are created with care + attention to detail where each item is Deb's own unique design. Deb not only designs each piece, but handles the fabrication of the entire piece - from cutting + sanding the wood, bending the metal, to making her own hooks - she even mixes her own paint colors! With Pig + FIsh useful art home decor products, you will find works that bridge art + function at an affordable price point.
You might be wondering about the quirky business name. Pig and Fish symbolizes Inner Truth and is not to be taken literally. Are you familiar with the I-Ching? It’s an ancient book of Chinese oracles + ‘pig and fish’ is taken from a passage in the I-Ching. The work that Deb creates comes from that place of Inner Truth + speaks to the joy she seeks when creating.
Pig + Fish finds value in living a creative life + surrounding oneself with well crafted, useful works of art. The work embraces color, function, + the work of the hand in all that is created. It is Deb's hope that the work will uplift + enrich your everyday.
