These decorative eggs came about when I taught ceramics to teenagers.
I wanted to engage them in art design through things that they found important such as the "Bling Culture"
and together we decided to use Faberge Eggs as a starting point.
From that experience I have developed my decorative egg design.
The incised patterns are inspired by the woven and dyed traditional cloth of Mali,
using uncomplicated designs in repetition to produce a stunning overall motif.
