Art of the Day: Saturday April 30, 2011


- by Nijole Byer

This week's theme: Close Your Eyes and Pick

The art in this week's Art of the Day wasn't selected in quite that manner, but there was a deliberate randomness to the process. Instead of thinking about what to choose, the plan was to go with impulse as much as possible. It was see it, pick it and add it to the line up with as little thought or analysis as possible.

Art: Parrot.JPG by Artist Nijole Byer

Custom designed one of a kind ostrich and emu egg art is hand carved using dentist like tools. It takes a lot of time to arrange a design as each egg shell has its own custom shape and size. Some ostrich eggs are as round as melons, some are elongated as football. Every egg is professionally cleaned and sanitized, hand carved, some details 18K gilded and each egg is sealed for protection. It takes about 6 to 8 weeks to make each piece of art.


I strive to make my egg sculptures as unique as possible - each one contains a piece of my heart attached to it.  Hope that new owner of my art will love and enjoy it as much as I did while creating it.  All my art and images are copyrighted. All rights reserved.
