Photo of the Day – June 7, 2010: Beetle & Flor
I first saw Beetle & Flor’s ceramic animal skulls at the Homemade: Brooklyn pop up store in Kill Devil Hill back in March sponsored by Shiny Squirrel and Sew Moni , and I spent some time under their tent at the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend. Beetle & Flor’s finely crafted ceramic skulls of North American wildlife, raccoons with golden incisors and snapping turtles with gold lustered beaks, make for unusual and beautiful conversation pieces. What I didn’t realize is their connection and dedication to working with artisans around the world to help them turn their crafts into successful livelihoods. Spend some time reading their entire website, and you may learn a few things or realize that you have found some kindred spirits. I did both.
