OH MY!!! This is amazing NT!!! It is so decorative..like Easter eggs but at a different level, like you could display them all year round, just sitting in a bowl! My friend collects eggs made of stone that way and this would be right up my alley! Zowie!!!

What a piece of art! I LOVE the colors. Do you have an url you could share to show how this is done? I looked around but couldn't find one. GREAT job! I can't believe this is your first egg!

Oh, just look at you and how you've progressed. I was always too lazy to make the canes. You've done a beautiful job. LOVE the egg. You gonna make a bunch of eggs? As I was dusting my egg collection the other day, I remembered the days of decorating eggs for my Christmas tree. I used beads. Egg art is another fun hobby mosaics ate up.

Gosh that's pretty, it's amazing it's made with clay. How clever. I've never really tried any clay work but this is sure tempting me,

Oh that is great! I haven't done the cane thing except to just run odds and ends together but I have been making some tiles for mosaics.
Great job.

Thank you all. The whole cane thing just fascinates me with all that tiny detail and I was so inspired by Chickeemama's canework and how beautiful it was - I had to try it.

Slow, an egg collection huh? maybe one day you could post us a pic? pretty please! lol
