What You're Lookin' At
Each of these varmints/creatures/monsters/whatevers is a one-of-a-kind, unique, made-by-hand sculpture. Each piece is sculpted, in a layered process using a variety of plastics, rubber, clay, metals and foolishness. It takes between 2 weeks to a month to build each piece (or longer on really extravagant pieces.) Check out our photo gallery for lots of examples.
You may be asking yourself, "Well, what are they for?" And we can proudly answer, "Not much," but they do make you laugh. Also, you'll notice if you hang one on a wall or in a space, you won't have to clean quite so often... folks tend to overlook things, like cleanliness, if there is something in their field of view that has an awful lot of teeth and it is looking back at them. The effect has been scientifically proven (I just made that up to add authority here) to be cumulative...the more varmints you've got up, the less cleaning you'll have to do...why you can even put off painting for a couple of years. Talk about your labor saving devices...you can figure out for yourself just how cost effective these guys really are.
Who Buys Them:
We're often asked, just who buys these? We can only answer "People with a twinkle in their eyes."
- People who let their inner child out to play,
- Dentists (great distraction factor),
- School principals,
- Faux-trophy hunters
- People with better things to do than clean
- Musicians, artists and other riff-raff,
- Silly people, Teachers (great teaching aids)
- Computer geeks
- People whose sense of humor is greater than their judgment
Now how much art do you own that has complete (and free!) dental coverage? If your varmint bites down on something unforgiving...no worries. We replace any broken teeth!
How do you clean them?
Hose 'em down. Using a spray, like the vegetable sprayer on a sink, quickly blast out the dust in the pores, shake off the excess water and let air dry. Try THAT on your fine art
