"Shell of Shells"

1 empty eggshell shipped 2,900 miles; 5 solid days of design and layout; 3 years waiting to be carved; driven 3 hours north to a first-ever artist's residency finally landed after 2 years' worth of sending out 42 denied applications; at least 65 dental drill bits reduced to nubs over 80 hours carving-time spanning the first half of the 30 day residency.........

.....only to crash into a million little pieces a mere 5 minutes into it's first-ever photoshoot, creating one big mess, fifteen minutes of tears, a singularly unique token of gratitude and one of the most valuable pieces I have ever had a hand in creating.
