The 6 Wildest Weapons of Peace
Functional Glass Art Model Guns Handblown By Robert "RAM" Mickelsen
Robert "RAM" Mickelsen has been blowing glass for over 30 years, designing world class glass sculptures which have been exhibited throughout some of the worlds leading art galleries and museums over the past several decades. In recent years, he transferred his talents into the high end functional glass realm and has introduced, and continues to add to, a wonderful line of functional glass sculptures aptly named the "Weapons of Peace". The beautiful and diverse collection of glass weaponry features both works done solely by Mickelsen as well as collaborative works between Mickelsen and other top name high-end functional glassblowers.
#6: Weapons of Peace: Mother Nature's Gun
A collaboration with 'Calm'
This beautiful piece finds its inspiration from an AK47. It was produced in December of 2014 although RAM and Calvin Mickle (Calm) planned the content of the piece earlier in the year. The content of Mother Nature's Gun depicts the duality of life and death according to the artists.
The functional glass gun features a very dense, jungle-like scene of leaves, bugs, insects, and birds. The steel display stand below is painted in a camouflage pattern.
