About the EGGS and the Artist:
Welcome to ArtEggs. Here you will find a selection of
Duck, Goose and Ostrich eggs that I have painted, engraved
and carved over the past two years.
All of the eggs were decorated with original designs inspired by my
interests in Nature and Art. As such, each egg is unique,
original, and being "one-of-a-kind," is highly collectable.
PAINTED EGGS - I use acrylic paint, and sometimes Gold leaf on my
eggs. Then they are sealed with a clear glaze to protect the finish, and
to add strength.
CARVED & ENGRAVED EGGS - I use a high speed dentist's drill to
engrave and carve into the egg shells. On some eggs I will cut right
through the shell, while on others, I will carve a design into the shell
without piercing it. I then seal the eggs with many coats of clear glaze
to protect and strengthen them.
THE STANDS - I use a variety of stands, all of which are chosen to
complement the design of the egg. I use gold plated stands, carved wood
stands, non-precious metal stands, and egg hangers.

About the ARTIST
My name is Shirley, and I am from Scotland. I was educated at the
Edinburgh College of Art where I specialized in the ancient art of
Tapestry Weaving, an exacting technique which requires lots of patience.
I have found that egg art demands the same kind of patience. I enjoy
exploring the possibilities of working on such a limited surface area.
