Lion

This ostrich egg was carved for an "eggart" version of a card swap. There is nothing added to the surface of the egg ... it is a relief carving and the depth is an illusion.


This bloodhound egg is one of my favorites.  The dog in the carving was a K-9 officer that was killed in a fire.  A truly heartbreaking story.  His name was Teddy and I called this egg "Sweet Teddy."



The next few eggs are emu eggs.   With the exception of the butterfly (which has glitter), there is no paint on the eggs.  The colors are achieved by carving through the layers of the shell.








Here are some Christmas ornaments.  These are primarily goose eggs, but the smaller eggs are duck.
