Thanksgiving Point in Lehi,Utah and Brian Baity Studio are collaborating to offer a carved eggshell exhibit for Easter 2013. On March 19th 2013 the public began viewing the more than forty pieces being shown. Numerous types of eggshells have been carved. There are eggs themed specifically for children as well as some very elaborate forms that seem to defy possibility. The largest eggs in the collection are ostrich and the smallest to be seen are duck eggs. Some of the other eggs you can find carved are goose, rhea, chicken, turkey, and emu. The emu eggs stand out in the display because they are naturally occur in 3 colored layers. The outer layer being nearly black, the center layer is turquoise and the third, innermost layer is white. Many of pieces included were part of the international exhibit shown in the National Museum of Bulgaria. There is even a scrimshaw ostrich eggshell of the Bulgarian Coat of Arms and another ostrich egg just like the egg that is on permanent display in the US Embassy in Bulgaria. As an added bonus some photos of the Bulgarian Museum tour have been included. The photos show some of the children who tried their hand at egg carving during demonstrations I offered through the local schools.
