“Salty Cinnamon Bun” is carved from a salt lick to embody a sweet and delicious culinary favorite. Cinnamon buns with their low nutritional value have become intertwined with our life and culture. Many Americans ritualistically travel to nearby pastry shops for a cinnamon bun. In “Salty Cinnamon Bun,” I recreate this aspect of Americana into a nutritional mineral supplement for animal life, not humans. In nature, when a salt lick appears, animals may travel to reach it. The salt lick becomes a sort of ritualistic pilgrimage where various wildlife can be observed. This juxtaposition of an urban commonality, the cinnamon bun, in a rural landscape filled with animal life becomes a surreal reality.
