Carved Eggshells by Beth Ann Magnuson






Carved Eggshells by Beth Ann Magnuson

The design is sketched on the eggshell, which has been emptied of it's yolk and egg white, and is carved using a tiny drill. She states:
My gardens and the surrounding verdant fields supply me with material and inspiration for my artwork. I gather eggs from neighboring farms and carve the shells into delicate ornaments I describe as Victorian Lace Eggs. I employ special tools and techniques to marble and etch eggshells.
