FAIRY / MOON

This is an Ostrich egg shell that has been carved and sculpted. All work is done by hand, using a NSK Dental Lab hand piece, both Diamond and Carbide Dental burs and Dental sanding discs of various sizes and grits. Many hours are spent sculpting since once you remove shell, there is no putting it back. The sculpting must be done slowly and minutely.

The Ostrich egg is the largest egg shell available now and it is also the thickest. The shell is a little more then 1/16 of an inch thick and that thickness will vary throughout the shell. Care must be taken that you don't go to deep and penetrate the shell in an area you didn't want to. There is no correcting mistakes and any mistake will mean starting over again, on another shell.

Displaying the egg on a light box really makes the carved and sculpted areas stand out and one does come with the egg. The light box takes a 7 watt Christmas light and it is very easy to change colors and a blue light really sets this design off.

All my eggs are shipped Priority mail and I have shipped them all over the world. Shipping listed is for the lower 48 states, if you would like it shipped elsewhere, please contact me for a shipping quote.
