Welcome to my Shop where you will find all types of Hand Carved egg shells, in many different designs, from Goose to Ostrich. While here, be sure to check out my Dream Catcher Eggs, they are definitely very unique and one of a kind. I doubt if you will find another Artist who does them or has even tried doing them..

All my prices are now the lowest they have ever been but the quality of my work has not changed, if anything, it is better. The low prices reflect the fact that my carving time has been greatly reduced, after some 35 years of carving eggs, and also the many different eggs I have in my inventory. Let's just say that as I keep getting older, I want, more and more, to leave a legacy behind. I also realize that times are tough for a lot of folks, myself included, and decided to offer a very unique and One-of-a-kind gift at a fabulous price. The fact that I also lost most of the eggs I had displayed in my showroom, to the earthquake that hit VA in 2011, made me want to see them displayed where they would be appreciated and not on my showroom floor.

Something new I will be doing and something you might want to check back often for, at least once a week I will list an egg that is discounted way below it's original asking price. How much of a discount, well, let's just say that the egg will be selling for at least a 50% discount, at least.

Thanks for stopping by and please Convo me if you have any questions or would like something special done. I do custom designs and will work with you to ensure you receive the best gift possible. I also do Portraits of both animals and people and Custom Wedding eggs.

Enjoy your visit,

Ron

A unique gift unlike anything else. This is a rare treasure and though I had doubts about packaging and shipment, it made it here in one entire piece. Love this so much!

About

Never too young or too old to learn something new.

I've been doing some type of Art just about all of my life, started with pencil drawings in grade school, and it seems that as I get older, I want to try more. I went from pencil drawings to wood carving, from there into scrimshaw and then custom knives. I was interested in engraving my knife blades, glass and other material and checked out some modified Dental Lab hand pieces because Dental burs were so small they would allow me to do very detailed work.

When I went to check out that first hand piece, the person showing it to me made a statement that it was so precise you could probably engrave an egg shell with it. A few months later, I tried and I found out I could. That was about 35 years ago and carving and sculpting egg shells became my main obsession. That's my biggest problem, I get so hooked on something that I just keep doing it, even when I have more finished items than I need.

I went from carving smaller eggs, like chicken, duck and goose, into carving and sculpting larger eggs, the emu, rhea and ostrich . I always love working on Ostrich eggs and constantly strive to get as much detail into that shell as I can, trying to make that egg shell look like one of my wood carvings. Even after 35 years, I am still learning different ways to do things and I hope that never stops.

I still use a Dental lab hand piece that turns 350,000 Rpm's, along with Dental burs, but over the years I have learned that a Dremel and Dental sanding discs are also crucial for my work. Actually, calling what I do work is not the correct description, I actually find it relaxing and hope I never get tired of doing it. This is definitely the type of work I really enjoy.

I thank the Great Spirit each and every day for allowing me to still be able, at my age, to turn egg shells into a work of Art and also thank Him for letting me learn patience and tolerance since breaking an egg, after many hours of work, could be frustrating but it's just a learning experience to me. How many hours of work might be wasted, I've broken eggs that had 10, 15 hours of work in them and one that had over 50. The way I look at it, if the Great Spirit gave me the time to almost finish that egg, maybe He will let me finish the next one, after all, the birds are laying plenty of eggs.

Right now, I have gotten hooked on another Art form, carving Quahog clam shells into focals and other jewelry items, best known as Wampum, an Art form started by the Native Americans. Like I said, I have always loved different forms of Art and I love Mother Natures work. I have always believed she is the most talented Artist there is and her beauty surrounds us. Unfortunately, most folks are just too busy, in this day and age, to look and enjoy it. I have to stop typing this right now so I can get my camera and get some pictures of the sunrise, moon still visible.
