This week's theme: Just Pick One?

There were several ideas for this week's Art of the Day theme, but picking just one proved too difficult so we decided to go with some of each.

Art: Hummingbird.JPG by Artist Nijole Byer

Once in my life time few years ago it happened to have a hummingbird in our house we tried to save during storm as it flew into the building. I have numerous pictures of marvelous little bird and it inspired me to make an egg to its image.  

Custom designed one of a kind ostrich 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 sealed for protection. It takes about 6 to 8 weeks to make a 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.
