TRANSFORMING ORDINARY OBJECTS INTO SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY

I love to subvert the function or place of origin of a material to elevate it to another level and play on the effects this produces. For a vibrant and organic finish, I cut the eggshells in pieces and make use of its natural round form. I think black is ideal for highlighting the animal skin or plant effects that I’m aiming for. Colored or gold cast glass adds a touch of refinement.

The inspiration for this eggshell work is rankaku, a traditional Asian technique that I discovered during a trip to Thailand.
