With Easter to come within a week, it is high time for those vivacious and uniquely conceived eggs. However, this time, we have stumbled across a DIY ‘egg conception’ that eschews those pretty colors in favor of something more avant garde. British designer Julie Dodd treads the artistic path with an air of novelty, with her marbled egg sculptures being made wholly from paper.
Yes, that’s right! Her egg conceptions are not made of real eggs, but from layers of reused paper. According to the artist herself, each of these sculptures consume around two to three magazines. In fact, the heartfelt procedure calls for gluing of an assortment of such relevant paper pieces one over the other, until they go on forming layers after layers, to finally achieve a genuine demeanor of an egg. For example, the above pictured conception required more than 2,000 different paper slices to form a substantial ‘Easter egg’.
Obviously, the process does require some DIY expertise, especially since all of the layers take their time to dry. Moreover, one has to personally guide the bearing of the paper composition with his/her fingers, so that the end result has a deft finish and shape, which is akin to the unique egg shape.
