Friday Egg: Taxi!

Friday Egg: Red Pineapple
A stylized floral pattern, reminiscent of a pineapple flower adorns this lovely little chicken egg. The back ground color is PUSA Patina, just a quick dip to make a lovely azure blue to contrast and complement the hot pink and magenta of the pineapple flowe...

Friday Egg: Senescence

Friday Egg: "Elliptical Red/Blue"
Today's egg is an idea I have been working with this year. I have become fascinated with the interior of the eggshell and what the pores of the eggshell do with the dyes as I work my design on the outside. Usually, this beautiful scattering of colors is onl...

Friday Egg: "Translucency"
I enjoyed every part of creating this piece. A lovely plain and simple etched egg but with a giant hole cut into the eggshell, revealing the internal play of light and shadow. The etching is the most important part of this piece, as the light is blocked mor...
