Using high-speed device called paragraver (something like a dental instrument), Brian Bate creates masterpieces of incredible beauty … from the simple egg. For carving eggshells you really need to have a steady hand and patience to the sea. Brian’s work not only exhibited in exhibitions but also around the world, he has also won several competitions. We present our collection of his incredible work.

Brian started carving in 2005 after buying a high-speed tool.

It is made from eggs rhea.


"This is my first job. To be honest, I never wanted to do carving on eggshells. I cut the pumpkin and hand weapons, and god knows what else. But once I bought a new instrument, and all that was on hand to try it, it was an egg."




"In the end, I dragged out the idea of ​​making something out of one of the most brittle materials. It turned out just gorgeous."


"The egg also has great symbolic importance in many cultures around the world. And the opportunity to create something unique from a simple egg has always inspired me."


Another masterpiece from ostrich eggs. By the way, ostriches hatch the eggs one by one: the female during the day, and males – at night.


Brian used several types of eggs – goose, ostrich, rhea and eggs and emu.







"This is my first job, which brought me fame. This is the winner of the contest Malcolm Forbes Art Gallery in New York. For winning the contest gave me an opportunity to put this masterpiece in the gallery of Malcolm in the whole month."












The average egg rhea has options 130 x 90 mm and weighs up to 600 g.
