I sketch a flower and vine pattern on the clean blown shell and use a high speed drill to hand carve the design shown above. Each egg I create is a wonder of nature, a rare and beautiful work of art.

The egg offered for sale here is a white duck egg. An oval wreath pattern covers the front of the egg with a delicate dot pattern on the reverse side. The shell measures approximately two inches tall. I accept special orders to carve and etch turkey, chicken, duck, peafowl, pheasant, partridge, and even quail eggs! Contact me to discuss your ideas.

Since the dawn of man, the egg has been associated with creation. Because they contain new life and such potential, eggs were seen as a tool of divination. Their size, shape, and contents were used to forecast the future. Christians regard the egg as a symbol of the risen Christ. Beautifully decorated Easter eggs are a common tradition throughout Christendom. The Victorians, fond of ornamentation, decorated their eggs with snippets of daily life: trade cards, ribbons, beads, and bits of old lace. The eggs I create today are etched or carved in patterns reminiscent of fine Victorian lace, and so I call these delicate, dainty works of art Victorian Lace Eggs.
