I endeavor to combine these properties to create a new art, a synthesis of ancient design toward a new worldview." Current price: $1500.
6 Ruth Powys - "The peculiarity of most things we think of as fragile is how tough they are. Squeeze an egg in your palm and it’s as hard as granite; a butterfly can flutter its wings over a flower in China and cause a hurricane in the Caribbean. Hearts may break, but hearts are the toughest of muscles, able to pump constantly without pause, 72 times a minute." Current price: $1400.
7 Karen Gunderson - "The Moon...something always in our lives, and at certain times, as we watch its changing shape, it becomes egg-like in form, and then, depending upon the light, we see the face of the moon as well as imagine the dark side of the moon with craters that, when hit by light, resemble jeweled facets." Current price: $850.
8 Christophe de Menil - "Thawing Tundra - an area of permafrost where growth still occurs. The locust thorns recall growth and the copper double helix is the conduit for it. I accept what is near and work with nature in its manner of operation." Current price: $550.
9 Clifford Ross - "When I had the opportunity to design an egg for Elephant Family and Studio in a School, it was natural to think of - imagery from my best-known series - hurricane waves.

14 Beth Katleman - "If Marie Antoinette and Howdy Doody met and decided to make a giant egg, and they happened to have over 600 handmade porcelain flowers, pearls, bunnies, and cast flea-market treasures at their disposal, this is the egg they would create. I’ve always loved the fancy sugar Easter eggs with little bunnies inside." Current price: $3200.
15 Maria Canale - "My egg is an Art Deco Jewel.

Current price: $7000.

Current price: $5100.
18 Jonathan Schloss - "One of the most famous eggs in history hangs in the background of Piero della Francesca’s altarpiece in Milan. I believe this egg-shaped object is a rare and beautiful, giant pearl. Filled with thousands of pearls, the copper egg is as rare as Piero’s pearl. Take a pearl for yourself - like the egg, a symbol of life." Current price: $1500.
19 Rachel Lee Hovnanian - "The Narcissus Egg - A mouse sits proudly on top of the egg on a bouquet of white narcissus flowers. Inside, white lab mice reside, nibbling away at a wedding cake. My work continues the examination of narcissism, memory, and technology, and its essential fallibility. Relationships are made and broken with the use of technology. Are we the new lab mice?" Current price: $3400.
20 Richard Mishaan - "My thoughts for the world is that we will find a glorious planet near Earth that will be enlightened, filled with positive energy, and meant for intelligence and good will.
