Eggs Become Art!


The eggs from our backyard flock look like this

My knitting friend Mary-Claire's artist neighbor, Florence, transformed them into this!
Wherever she could, Florence incorporated the rich natural egg colors into her designs.

Welsummer eggs are this beautiful rich, dark brown

The background color of this one is also the natural color of the egg






This is probably a Peckatina egg (see below)

This one says "thank you" on the other side. It was for me for providing the eggs...



although Peckatina just reminded me to tell you who really does the egg production around here
(and that every single egg is a work of art)!

How beautiful! I love the decorated eggs. I'm usually just seeing Ukrainian decorated eggs which are also beautiful but I love the Southwest theme in some of the eggs you photographed.

These eggs are gorgeous. So wonderfully crafted by hen and human.

Are the eggs long-lasting? They are so beautiful that they should last forever.

clairz said...

Helen, they should last (especially since our cats are older and slowing down). The insides of the eggs are blown out after the painting has been done, and there is a protective coating on the outside.

Amazing for sure .. we didn't do any eggs this year.

Wow! I read your comments to see if anyone else asked if the eggs were blown; glad to know they were. Absolutely beautiful. And treasures to keep for as many years as possible.
