Sculpted Egg Shells

I had seen pictures of Brian Baity’s work floating around the internet a while back and was amazed. However, now I look at these egg shell  sculptures through the frame of 3D printing. While constraining himself to working with a thin layer of material (an egg shell), his work shows the power of negative space.

Mr. Baity even manages to add texture to the already thin shell.

Another thing to take away from his work is the choices he makes in the stands he places these sculptures on (just as important as the correct frame for a painting).

I can’t begin to imagine how he transports his work. Insurance on his pieces must be crazy expensive.
