New England Horseshoe Crab | Large | Merrymeeting Clay


SKU: C140-17085

Otherworldly, captivating, prehistoric, the horseshoe crab remains virtually unchanged for hundreds of millions of years. These stoneware clay New England horseshoe crab art pieces are an homage to this history: a reflection of our appreciation for nature and an attempt to crystallize this New England icon in a sculptural form that can sit comfortably on an office desk or hang elegantly on a wall, always ready to remind us of our own past and our connection to the wider natural world around us.

Approximate dimensions: 15″ long, 7″ wide, 3″ tall. The removable ceramic tail is attached to the body using a strong magnet, allowing for movement and safe packing. Attach to your wall using a standard nail, screw, picture hook, or included wire hook.

The New England Horseshoe Crab is made with high-fired stoneware clay from molds of real Maine Horseshoe Crab shells. No live crabs are injured in the making of these objects!
