This event was a little different than the others in this tour, we held the demonstration right after the opening ceremony. So I rolled up my sleeves and set to letting the visitors try egg carving. A few photos below show the results of the day.

  1. It was really a great event, Brian. Thank you for much! Karlovo media published extremely nice response and named you one of the best engravers of eggs in the world. Karlovo people really like you and hope you will go back there again. Hope in future we can open a private art school there for young talents. We have in the neighbor village an orphan school, so if we find finds, some of them may develop amazing talents. Last but not least hope the exhibit will become a big cultural event in Utah in 2016.
