This is a more traditional/Folk style egg design. Wheat is a common theme in Lithuanian crafts and art. Wheat is also woven into ornaments and animals such as swans.
The design is on a chicken egg. Various colors are available.
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.
Folk Wheat in Basket
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.
