The egg is a sculpture rather than a planter although as you can see it can been used either way. The modern Egg sculpture is made in the UK most often by my fair hands and when it is as large as 1m it has a presence that is exactly what you would want from a striking sculpture.
What I wanted to create with The Egg was a rougher product that had a real hand made feel. It’s a contrast to the perfect forms of my mainstream planters and was the result of playing with the materials I had. I personally like the way it is rough and how the internal colour and surface finish contrasts with the exterior.
Made from fibre reinforced concrete the material is strong and durable and has a rough edge to it like the broken shell of an egg. The outside is etched with a turquoise finish to echo the blue tones of a duck egg and the inside is painted to your colour choice and is completely person to you. From white paint to gold leaf I am happy to investigate different finishes to make the work your own.
