Uncle Ludo is a character of great integrity. He is a connoisseur of whiskey and recognized for his charming and witty ways. He has been involved in the music industry for over 20 years and is responsible for the stardom of BLAMO’s Hip Hop Billy. He also has his own ill skillz on the mic.
To create Ludo, I first drew him and then sculpted him out of clay. I gave my clay version to Andu, who carved a miniature version out of wax. We then take the wax sculpture to an outside facility to have it cast in brass. Ardi, the silversmith at our workshop, takes it from there, cleaning up the casting and fastening the loop on his back to one of our awesome handmade spring clips.
Designed by Spencer Hansen, this solid brass gorilla skull pendant measures 2.5 cm x 2 cm and hangs from a custom 5 cm brass spring clip.
Please note that because all Blamo keychains are handmade, despite our efforts to create the perfect art figure, each one is unique and may contain minor imperfections… or as we like to call it, character.
