“I spent a long time working out a pattern for this snail, trying different types of shells and fabrics. So here he is, made from tapestry fabric I rescued from the upholsterer’s, with a terracotta shell, colored with engobe and waxed.
He’s 5” long and 4.5” tall, including his eyes. Body stuffed with polyfil. Shell made from low-fired clay, colored with yellow engobe, fired to 1000°, then waxed.”
