Farmer John by draigathar
This sculpture is based on one of my favorite songs, "John's Garden" by Peter Mayer. Character used with permission. It's a story about a bunch of pumpkins who aren't sure whether or not they want to become jack-o-lanterns. You can see the full lyrics here: http://www.thirdroar.com/sculptures/2004-007-FarmerJohn/
Farmer John has a cloth body over a wrapped wire armature and he stands about 15" tall. His head, hands and feet are sculpted in polymer and epoxy clay. The pumpkins are sculpted in paperclay. All were painted with acrylics. Farmer John has fabric and leather clothing and a straw hat, and he is pegged to a wooden base. The pumpkins have silk leaves and real straw bales.
