Lawrence was inspired by the Seinfeld episode wherein Kramer decides to help himself to the tasty crustacea he "found" in the lobster traps at the end of some traplines. There must be a hundred memorable lines of dialogue in that episode! And remember Kramer's great rayon bowling shirt with red lobsters all over?

This handpainted pillow measures 21""x7" and is reminiscent of the buoys that mark lobster traps off the east coast of the U.S. Stuffed with polyester fiberfill and topped with a nylon rope loop. The cover is fashioned of indoor-outdoor acrylic fabric that cleans up like a breeze and weathers all types of weather. The nontoxic textile paint colors in bright, primary red will wake up a ho-hum room or shady corner of the patio. The perfect yacht-warming gift!

Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted by the artist on an island in Washington State, where we don't have lobsters but share real estate with millions of Lawrence's cousins, the Dungeness crab. Arrives in its own crinkly, shiny cello bag with a pretty hangtag, ready for gifting to your favorite chef, skipper, fisher, crusty relative or seafood lover.

Have a snappy day!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high shipping costs, customers outside of North America will receive COVERS ONLY, which will need to be stuffed and stitched closed.
