Delicately Drilled Eggshells

March 23, 2008 at 9:51 pm (art, neat things)

Franc Grom beautifully decorates eggshells. Whatever your feelings/thoughts/etc. concerning Easter and/or egg-decorating, these are worthy of a look or two.

Grom uses an electric boring tool to drill approximately 2,500 to 3,500 holes in an eggshell. Inspired by traditional Slovenian designs, he has been known to pierce a shell as many as 17,000 times.

How Mr. Grom manages to produce such outcomes without breaking those shells, I cannot fathom.
