Is a delicate art form that originated centuries ago in the far east. The egg played an important part in the
life of the family. They were given as gifts for weddings, births, and as collectibles. This tradition was and still is honored in many eastern countries. The egg is considered
the source of life. Carved eggs are bestowed
to honor life and the life it uplifts. They combine natures practical, yet delicate designs with the elements of fantasy
and craftsmanship. The egg is called natures most perfect canvas. The intention of my work is to enhance the natural beauty of the shell while striving to keep
the original oval shape of the egg.
CARVED GOOSE EGGS

Approximate height of finished egg, adhered

Each piece is a one of a kind creation.
Please be aware
that eggs are individuals. They are like people -- no two are exactly alike.
you find a design that appeals to you, it most likely can be carved again, but it can never be exactly duplicated.
