Bethany Krull
Snails on a Blue Floral Teacup "Traversing Painted Flowers 4" by Bethany Krull

About

This piece was created with real found snail shells and a durable epoxy clay by New York artist, Bethany Krull. She sculpts the undulating snail bodies to circle the delicate rim of the floral teacup. The glistening wet bodies are surfaced with many layers of paint before applying the final slimey texture which is meticulously created by slip-trailing gloss gel acrylic medium onto the surface dot by dot. She sees the teacup and its delicately painted flowers as a surrogate habitat that spotlights the dichotomy between wild and tame, interior and exterior and natural and artificial.
