SPRING RITUALS II - ‘Fresh Eggs’
Exhibition - 27th March to 30th April 2023, Rosedale Abbey.
We hope you can join us as we revisit the theme of engraved eggs in our first studio exhibition for over three years.
Decorated eggs have long been a potent cross-cultural symbol of new beginnings and the forthcoming Spring.
A new collection of pieces, principally inspired by the eggs of the now extinct Elephant bird, explore the patterns made by the reassembly of giant fossils.
Intricate surface designs celebrate the unassuming but incredibly symbolic egg, with engraved forms in both transparent and opaque blown glass. The form and patterns portray the function of the egg as a protector of new life and its inherent fragility. The fragmented patterns are universal in their structure, like cracked dry earth or breaking ice sheets.
The reassembled eggs have a power and beauty celebrated in Japanese culture; Kintsugi highlights the repair of a broken object with any repair scars painted gold, in part a celebration of the past while enabling the future function of the object.
