New Ceramic Rayguns from Muddy Mountain Pottery – Now With Vintage Glass Insulators

Filed under Found on the Web

ceramic & glass ray guns from Muddy Mountain PotteryI’ve written before about these highly cool raku-glazed ceramic rayguns from West Magoon at Muddy Mountain Pottery – but this week, hot on the heels of my post about art glass ray guns, I find that Muddy Mountain’s latest personal disintegration devices incorporate vintage glass insulators (the kind you’d once have seen on telephone and telegraph poles).

These work wonderfully well, as you can see, and there’s something really special about the way these retro ray guns have absorbed some genuinely retro technology. Great idea!

Raku Rayguns from Muddy Mountain PotteryShown above is the Rotwang Retrovivifier (named after the definitively mad scientist of Metropolis) and on the left you see the Lensman DeLameter, a nod to E. E.”Doc” Smith’s lantern-jawed Lensmen.

As you can see, this week marks that long awaited time when glass has become all the rage in ray guns. I think it’s pretty obvious that you’d better get one before the neighbors do. Since these are one-of-a-kind artifacts there’s no risk that Mrs. Nextdoor will accessorize with the same one you’re packing.
