Founded by Christine Facella in 2007, Beetle & Flor is a Brooklyn based design studio which focuses on creating unique handmade items for the home. The North American Wildlife series grew out a love of the natural world, and dates back to the days when Christine worked as a freelance artist at the Museum of Natural History in NY, where she drew countless turtle skulls.
Proceeds from B&F's products support design projects with artisans in disadvantaged communities.
Cast in unglazed porcelain, this skull has a beautiful matte white finish. It is rendered to anatomical perfection. The teeth are glazed in either clear gloss or gold luster which contrasts with the otherwise raw finish.
