Porcelain Handguns



Artist Yvonne Lee Schultz makes porcelain replicas of James Bond's Walther PPK handgun:

The fragile weapon, hand-painted in the style of classic tableware motifs, liesnext to your coffee and cake, asking to be picked up. Its coolness andcomfortable grip increase the qualms of the user, leaving him in a quandary between the pleasure of luxury and violence.


The pistols are available in a variety of patterns.

The next logical step is to combine this with the Hello Kitty AR-15, producing a pink porcelain Walther replica with a saccharine cartoon cat on the handle.

Charles Krafft did a beautiful series of these in 1999 for the Slovenian Ministry of Defense show. Later toured the US to much low-brow fanfare and High-brow reviews in numerous arts periodicals.
