When you were a child in art class did you blow the yolk out of an egg to leave an empty shell and then decorate the outer shell? I remember that I tried and I just kept breaking the egg shell. I don’t think I would have much better luck today either. Gary LeMaster doesn’t have that problem…he’s a world famous egg carver. Using real eggs (ostrich, rhea, emu, goose), a variety of diamond and carbide cutting tools, and eventually three or four coats of lacquer, he produces breathtaking eggs.
Maybe I love eggs because it is the beginning of all things…or was it the chicken?
