Christine Facella's Profile
Beetle & Flor specializes in unique handmade porcelain items for the home. All pieces are handmade in our Greenpoint studio at Ash street, a former candle factory on the dirty waterway of Newtown creek. Despite leaks and rodents, we love this spacious building, and I (Christine) spend plenty of time recreating skulls of North American wildlife here. This initially began around 2008 while working at the Museum of Natural history in New York, illustrating turtle skulls for the vertebrate paleontology department. After a few years I just wanted to recreate that we drew in 3 dimensions, and so grew the collection of porcelain skulls.
This shop is a mix of the current collection including some imperfects (seconds), and on occasion, brand new stuff. For more info check out our website: www.beetleandflor.com, or contact me here: beetleandflor [!at] yahoo.com
