Easter Eggs for Grownups

With the coming Easter weekend I wanted to show some of you the options you have that go beyond hard boiled or plastic encased candy. These items take the egg shape and turn it into art.

This first example is from the appropriately name studio The Egg Man. He does all types of images carved into several types of eggs. I encourage you to go take a look.

The next one to show you is made of wood. The inspiration behind the design is earth, water and sky and each of those are represented by a cutout that is part of the egg design. You can find this egg and much more beautiful scroll saw work in the shop ZZBobs Creative Woodworking.

What would Easter be without a bit of lovely color in your surroundings? Much like the earth waking up from the gray of winter, Easter and springtime mean a return of a world with colors in it. These decoupaged wood eggs in Japanese Yuzen papers would bring some color inside your home. The eggs as well as so much more can be found in Catnip Studios.

All of these items are from shops found on Artfire. This post is part of a blog carnival hosted by the BlogFire Guild. The guild's mission is to spread the word about the amazingly talented artists, artisans and crafters who have shops on Artfire. You will find the blog carnival hosted on the guild blog on Friday April 2nd. I encourage you to check it out.

May you find something wonderful.

  1. Beautiful! I the choices you made. They are so wonderful. Much respect to the eggman, after trying to empty an egg for my daughter's school the other day I can only imagine the painstaking work that goes into every egg.

    Cheers & happy Easter
