Art & Culture: Natalie Baxter’s “Warm Guns”

    This is just too funny not too share. I’m leaving all politics and opinions behind to see the humor, and so should you.

    The artist Natalie Baxter has been busy growing her collection of firearms.

    It’s just that they are all quilted.

    She’s got a BA in Fine Art from the University of the South in Sewanee and a MFA from the University of Kentucky in 2012. Through video, photography and sculpture, her work deals with issues of home and place identity. Her most recent work, “Warm Gun”, applies the sewing skills she learned from her Appalachian grandmother to create soft sculpture guns. She currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.


    Below you can enjoy a selection of Baxter’s fluffy and colorful creations.

    Take a deep breath and scroll down, it will be worth it (don’t forget to continue breathing).


    -“Excuse me, do you have a Glock in store?”

    -“Sorry sir, they’re all sold out. Would you be interested in our ‘Razzle Dazzle’ in fabric and polyfill instead?


    -“We’ve got some very nice rifles too. You interested?



    First date: -“Uhum, wonderful darling, but have you heard of Heckler & Koch’s Gray Room?”


    Perfect for countries and states where you’re not allowed to have your firearms hanging on the walls.

    Pretty safe to, if you have small children they’ll always get a soft landing.


    No certificates, ITARs, background checks needed for this mighty collection. At least so far, no one knows what the future holds.


    In an interview with Art Zealous Baxter got the question how many guns she has.

    -“I have around 200 guns – I started counting around 150. It is obsessive.”

    Yes, I think we can all relate to that feeling, except I think most readers here will go for the real thing.

    And, by definition, she’s a Hardcore Super Owner.


    Below: Most items are already sold out. Reminds me of how difficult it can be to get hold of a lower sometimes.



    Below: I imagine this is some sort of .50 BMG, in need of Viagra.

    Or perhaps it’s designed to shoot around corners? Or is it a dinosaur with a handle?




    Below: A selection of unique rifles. Just like Ceracoating you rifle, anything seems possible with these “Warm Guns” as well.


    I wonder what Al Capone would have said about this “Tammy Gun”?


    Below: I think that might be an AR Gold trigger. Note the tactical tassels on the barrel.



    Personally, I prefer the real thing, real firearms.

    I you want to look less tactical or “warm”, just add some colors, patterns or pink.

    A little pink is always a safe bet.

    These pants aren’t too tactical either.
