I still can’t quite believe these are real. American artist Gary LeMaster has been working on this fairly unique form of sculpture for many years and has raised it to an astonishing level. Using a 400,000 rpm dental tool, he carefully cuts and sculpts these amazingly intricate forms into the delicate surface of genuine egg-shells. The ones that amaze me the most are the chicken egg portraits – minutely detailed, and cut 7/1000″ into a shell just 14/1000″ thick. I would strongly suggest you have a look at the gallery on his website – the volume, intricacy and all round quality of his work is unbelievable.
