Maybe your grandmother collected little European china dolls. Your mom? She may have had a shelf full of ceramic Beanie Babies Hummel figurines. Just because you aren’t into saccharine-sweet, doe-eyed china kids you’d rather line up for an afternoon of spirited plinking doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate fine ceramic works. Charles Krafft, ceramicist and “seditious” artist, makes, in his own words, “life-size ceramic weaponry so gorgeous and patently functionless that it will bedazzle and confound everyone who sees it.” OK then. One caveat, though: if you do put one if his AKs on your Christmas list, keep in mind they run $2,700 so you’ll have to have been a very good boy this year for Santa to (gingerly) plop one of these babies under your tree.
