Ostrich eggs carved with a very high speed drill, fitted
with a little nightlight and placed on a circle of geese stand and an antique bronze inkwell.
These give off a beautiful warm glow and
the cutwork puts a light pattern on the ceiling.
I called this egg "Rose's Secret Garden".
It is the brainchild of Rose Grave, my most regular buyer. She has wonderful ideas I get to put into solid form.
This is an emu egg with four petals that have all been hand-carved with scrolls. All four petals drop or can be left
closed. The cherub inside is surrounded by miniature foliage. The base is a column with roses and gold filigree
This egg below is a wedding cake topper. It took
25 hours to carve this ostrich egg. It is attached to a standard cake topper base that I gold leafed and added AB Swarovski
stones in many places. The "S" and "J" on the heart-shaped doors are carved in and gold leafed as well. Inside
is a handblown glass and 22K gold castle that is removeable for ease in packing. This was our gift to our nephew and
his fiance for their wedding.
|I love it when I find a really unusual stand...
|Now to figure out how to get electrics to it!
