I sketch a pattern on a clean blown egg 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 pale green chicken egg. A carved a vine and flower motif with a center dotted oval covers the front of this egg. It measures 2 1/2 inches tall and comes boxed with a complimentary Lucite stand.


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.
