"Egg"ceptional quality

So how many of you have ever tried to get the egg out of the eggshell without breaking it?  I know what you're saying, you have to break the eggshell to get the egg out!  I have tried the technique where you pop two small holes and try to blow the egg out, but I have never had a lot of luck with that.

But Piotr Bockenheim has not only figured out how to get the egg out of Goose shells, but he has figured out how to use a drill, I don't know what kind, to get beautiful geometric designs carved into the eggshell.






So what are your thoughts on these beautiful eggs?  Can you think of a medium that would be even more fragile and harder to work with?  Do you think he designs his ideas before he starts or do you think is a medium that you just have to let your imagination flow?

  1. it's amazing how he got the eggs to look like that. he would have to have a really steady hand to carve the egg with such designs. it's very beautiful, they would make really good design pieces

  2. I always thought of egg shells as really fragile. You would have a to be really careful if you were going to attempt this project. I think that its a really good idea. Its different than most materials that people dare to use.

  7. That is awesome! It would be hard to do with an egg shell though! You would have to be very careful

  8. i think these eggs are pretty neat. they look like they were made very meticulously and with very precise hands. I think it looks like it could be made out of a play-doh/clay substance which would be very hard to do.

  10. These are some fancy eggs. I want to know how they did not break. I wonder if the artist put something on them to make the shells harder to break. I love ho much detail is used on them. I wonder what kind of tool they used to do this? My favorite one is the very top one where they put a light under it.

  17. This is awesome. The detail is so cool. The time it must have taken to do this must have been a lot. This is so amazing.

  18. These are really cool, although i have to think it was a laser drill he used. A more interesting medium to use would be to take old china dolls and carve designs in their surface. That would truly be cool to look at, although i think he would have to use a laser drill for sure with them.

  19. I think they are pretty. I would like to try to make one. I like the one that looks like bricks. I think I would break them.

  20. I cant begin to imagine the amount of aggravation from this project. I wouldn't ave enough patients for this project even though this is really cool work of art!

  21. this is crazy. i don't get how they can make it that thin without it breaking. i couldn't do this because i would break it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is super cool. There is no way i could be that gentle and have that much patience to make something out of egg shells.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is such a good idea. I would have never thought of making something like this. It looks like it would take a bunch of time to do!

  24. I have heard that if you put a match in a bottle, and put an egg over the top, it will take the egg out without hurting the shell much. Anyway, I think that the only thing more delicate than an egg is probably glass. Have you ever seen people blow glass bubbles? The eggs are very cool too.

  25. I think these are really cool. It would be very hard to carve that with out breaking it.

  26. I would've never guessed they were actually egg shells. Potato chips and glass are also two very fragile mediums. I would imagine he definitely designs them before but goes with the flow if he would happen to mess up.

  27. this is cool how they shaped the egg like this but it would take some skill to make it like not brake

    ReplyDelete
  28. How could they do that with out breaking the shell is totally beyond me!!!!!

  29. wow that's really impressive that someone is able to make such intricate detail into an egg with cracking it. I know i can barely hold one without cracking it. The drill he uses must be really soft or not that powerful or maybe goose shells are really tough, i don't know. But it probably takes a ton of time to get the design in since you'd have to be careful not to crack it.

  30. That's very cool but looks quite impossible. Where did the man even come up with the idea. I think he uses magic and just lets people believe that he used some kind of tool to design it.Does he clean inside the egg shell after he's done designing it because i don't know if it smell or rot or whatever.

  32. i think that the artist did plan this out well and did put the time to map it out. obviously i think it would be harder at the top of the egg since it gets so small. but the artist defiantly has talent

  33. Now this is something I would love to do!! I am always looking for a new way to decorate a little table or something. This would be so cool to make!

  34. This is so cool. I love that the artist was able to make beautiful art out of delicate eggs. I think it would be fun to try to do this, even if they didn't turn out right.

  35. I think this is really cool because egg shells are so fragile and I don't get of how someone could create such a beautiful peace out of something so simple as egg shells.

  36. This is very interesting! the designs and styles of the eggs are very elegant! i wish i could do something like this.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I hope that this artist didn't make the same amount of money on all of these eggs. Some of them are actually very cool and interesting, but others are just dumb and i dont like them at all.
