Eggshell

Delicately broken and hand inlaid.

Cracked eggshell has played an important part in Asia’s ornamental history as well as in the design of historical bespoke surfaces. Nowadays the process remains the same as before; systematically cracking pieces of eggshell to certain sizes and inlaying them by hand.

Like other materials we use, eggshell is a by-product of the food industry and is mainly sourced from local bakeries. We can roast and colour the shell to create specific patterns, colours and textures.
