EVERYTHING COMES FROM THE EGG
Eggshell inlay is a heritage skill that has played an important part in East Asia’s ornamental history. Deceptively simple, our process remains the same: cracking pieces of eggshell and inlaying them by hand.
Our eggshell is a by-product of the food industry and is mainly sourced from local bakeries and farms. We roast and colour the shell to create specific patterns, colours and textures, like the snakeskin effect seen here.
EGGSHELL SNAKESKIN WHITE
The cracking of the eggshell in contrast with white provides a fresh yet abstract patterning.
EGGSHELL SNAKESKIN BURGUNDY
Our rich burgundy contrasts with the eggshell, the whole imparting a distinctive ambience.
EGGSHELL SNAKESKIN BLACK
Mysterious and elegant, this surface makes a statement and provides a unique presence to any interior.
OSTRICH EGGSHELL CLOSE CRACKLE
A classical patterning re-visited: this surface highlights two contrasting textures: that of the broken shell and that of the shell itself.
