|My "Bungled Jungle" collection
|The Bungled Jungle is "Earth's exclusive dealer in other worldly creatures"
I first met Pat and Suzanne, the creators of the Bungled Jungle about 14 or so years ago and I bought a
couple of pre historic looking fish heads from them to give to people as gifts. I would see them at different art
shows that came through Denver from time to time and didn't really get interested in collecting their stuff until
I moved to Ft Collins Colorado where they lived and made their creatures.
I saw a really large rhino head and thought that some day I would own one. I had purchased several smaller
pieces from them over the years but it wasn't until about 5 years ago that I went to their open house and
found my first big piece...the "Sabre tooth woolly rhino". Ever since then I've bought a big piece from them
almost every year ,until the African art addiction started eating into my budget and I started running out of
Pat and Suzanne are great people and I know that their creatures are a little strange, but you have to know
them I think to fully appreciate their art!
Here is a link to their web site, it lists the upcoming shows they will be at around the country.

|WHAT IS THIS???
The Bungled Jungle is the collaborative effort of two silly people, Pat and Suzanne.
Each sculpture is an original creation--no molds are used -- everything is one of a kind.
The process starts with a metal/wood or plastic armature that is then built up with layers of rubber,
plastic, metal, plaster and clay...each piece will have approximately 13 separate materials interlayered.
It takes between 2 weeks to a month or more of daily dabbling to complete each sculpture--depending
on its size and complexity.
Not only are these monsters/beasts and varmints lovely to look at, they also come with COMPLETE
DENTAL COVERAGE.... AND can be used as personal flotation devices in case of flooding.
