harry allen loves trucks. his immaculately restored 1964 willys jeep was recently featured in the new york times, but it was his fond memories of playing in the dirt that lead him to the idea of pickup. the beauty of any pickup truck is its utilitarian aesthetic. four strong wheels and the capacity to haul cargo. harry had function on his mind as he cast a toy truck and turned it into a catch all bowl. as with all reality products, it is the material transformation that completes the idea. this pickup is a functional art for the home.
