Bethany Krull
Snails on a Pink Floral Teacup "Traversing Painted Flowers 3" by Bethany Krull

2020

About

This piece was created with real found snail shells and a durable epoxy clay. Hand formed by New York artist, Bethany Krull, the undulating snails circle the delicate rim of this floral teacup. The glistening wet creatures 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.
