I think guns are scary. OK, maybe it's more people with guns that are scary. Still, I find it difficult to appreciate guns as 'innocent' objects...

But here is a portrayal of a gun that you can't help but like. If nothing else for the incredible stitching. There's an impressive amount of it and the colourings make it look very 3D.


  1. Very Kool!Great dimension in there! But I'm with you...guns make me feel uneasy.

  2. Thanks for featuring my work. It's all based on my feelings about my husband's career in the USAF. This was about conquering fears and frustration.

    Thanks for looking past the subject matter and seeing the intention. I'm going to keep doing this work until the war ends.

  3. Wow, awesome work! I grew up with a hunting family, so I am not afraid of guns although I do respect them greatly. I am actually pretty good at target shooting.

  4. This is absolutely beautiful! I love the colors. You can tell it was created with emotion and love. Your husband is very brave and both of your sacrifices are much appreciated--I hope he comes home safe.

  5. wow, that is just amazing! never seen such work before!

  6. I never thought I'd say this about a gun... but it's BEAUTIFUL!
