This egg is so unique. The color combination is wonderful, and the black wrapped around the outside is so pleasing. The cutouts on this piece add a lot of visual interest.
The Bag Cut Egg uses a color technique that is a departure from my traditional mosaic work. In this piece only four colors of glass are sculpted raw, on the blowpipe. The result is a very organic multi color pattern that comes to life as one looks through the piece to the other side. To contrast this I have wrapped a deep glossy black spiral over the irregular shape which resembles a crumpled bag. I have also cut voids into the piece so in certain areas only one color is visible, while in others you can see right through the piece.
