2 x 5" solid bronze with polymer clay sausages.
The Mayor is at the center of an installation at Schlaraffenland. I was fortunate enough to be invited by William Bennett at the UVa sculpture department to take part in a lost-wax casting, and he is the result.
He is part religious icon, part Schlaraffenland leader of the past, with a dash of Napoleon for good measure. The installation included hundreds of sausage offerings spilling around his feet and a bowl of Schlaraffenland communion wafers to bless him with, or be blessed by him, whichever seems to strike one at the time.
I made a limited edition run of resin castings from the bronze. My partner and I did them in our bedroom, which has the most floor space in the apartment... it was a real adventure. I cast them in bright white resin, and each is a little different.

///update, May 20: Andrew from Thinkspace sent some images along of the aspics' progress as they went their moldy, soupy way through Schlaraffenland. It was too glorious not to share. (for those of you with a weak stomach, I figured a thumbnail would be merciful; click to enlarge.)
An interview with Erratic Phenomena is up-- check it out! In it, I talk a little more about the rhyme and reason behind Schlaraffenland, some of my favorite childhood books, and why my creatures wear lederhosen.
