Beetle & Flor specializes in unique handmade porcelain items for the home. All pieces are handmade in a Greenpoint studio at Ash Street, a former candle factory on the dirty waterfront of Newtown creek. Despite leaks and rodents, they love this spacious building, and Christine spends plenty of time recreating skulls of North American wildlife there. 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, Christine decided to recreate what they drew in three dimensions, and so grew the collection of porcelain skulls.
