Escargot snails were introduced to California the same year that Louis Comfort Tiffany was born. They've traveled a similar trajectory as well - falling from grace, going feral, and then eventually regaining their position as a signifier of class and taste (for gourmands more so than gardeners). In this series, live snails have been painted with some of Tiffany’s popular lamp and window patterns.
