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

See the carving process at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XZ-TFuIxDQ

The egg offered for sale here is a Rhea egg and the "basket" measures approximately 5 inches tall and 7 inches wide. Two blown partridge eggs will be included nestled in sisal in the basket.

I accept special orders to carve and etch goose, 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.
