Ostrich Egg Art: The Eggshell Sculpture That BROKE!

The Eggshell Sculpture That BROKE:

The one that broke

OK, I can finally talk about it. A few years ago I donated this art piece to the Children’s Hospital silent auction. Just as they opened the doors for the bidders to enter the room… a volunteer made a last second adjustment to the table cloth and plop went this piece. Shattered into pieces! Needless to say they have allowed me to set the display up for them since then.

Now what do I do with these pieces?

I could throw them away… not an option

I could make something of them… awe, much better option.

So this is what I did:

I made three different “framed art” pieces. Two of them went to Charities (Eggs To Ovaries)  and the other to (St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital) where they sold. The third one I sold at an art show.

So… if you break a masterpiece of your own DO NOT throw it away. You can use it.
