Catholic Easter is long gone but the Orthodox is now, so some inspiration for this year's eggs comes from Slovenia: Franc Grom patiently drills the egg shells with an electric boring tool, making them more beautiful than any Fabergé egg out there.
Usually he needs 2,500 to 3,000 holes to create one egg but once he pierced 17,000 holes in one! He is inspired by traditional Slovenian designs.
Making eggs look like lace is his speciality, they look so delicate and fragile one is afraid of touching them. His intricate work has been published in National Geographic and many internet websites.
I cannot imagine his frustration if an egg breaks while he is working on it...
So, anyone care to try this at home?
Happy Orthodox Easter to all my friends!
