The founder and owner of ArtHead Studio in Palmer, Massachusetts, Deb Kracht takes old tools, cast off kitchen utensils and other so-called junk and turns it into playful little critters and creatures with names like “Junkheads,” “Scrapheads” and “CutUps.” “I’m the person you see at the flea market buying the stuff that nobody else wants,” Kracht says.
These are gonna sell.
