This egg combines two important images in Lithuania, acorns and oak leaves. Lithuania has been and still iss extremely tied to nature. The Oak tree is still an important symbol today.
As always, the egg is available in many colors.
Each items is the result of etching a design with an assortment of blades and etching tools. I hand craft each egg. The eggs are hollowed, washed and dyed. After the egg is fully dry I draw a design on the egg and etch an image, revealing the original egg color. This design will be completed on either a white or blue/green chicken egg.
Divided Acorn and Oak Leaf Egg
The size of this item varies depending on the size of the chicken egg. I use large, extra large, and jumbo eggs. I rarely purchase eggs from the grocery store. The majority of my egg shells come from local farmers.
