Intricate Eggshell Art
Now, this is just amazing. Who knows whether this artist/craftsman has specialist tools to craft these designs on an eggshell, but the skill and creativity is obvious from the shells themselves.
How are these designs marked out so geometrically accurate? Or is this just the artistic skill in process?
Even more baffling, how are the holes and negative spaces punched out without breaking the already fragile shells? Are they treated somehow?
And I wonder whether countless hours of intense, detailed work has often been destroyed whilst this artist has been “learning” the trade, by a careless slip, or a little too much pressure.
I guess when a craft is intriguing and baffling to understand the “how”, it just makes it all the more interesting and admirable.
