This egg is simply gorgeous. The simplicity of the color pattern is interrupted by the rigid rectangles that are cut out of the piece, which makes it very visually interesting.
The Square 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 cut rectangular voids into the piece so in certain areas only one color is visible, while in others you can see right through the piece.
