These masterpieces are hand-made by Franc Grom.
Slovenian Franc Grom crafts beautiful, lacelike sculptures into egg shells, inspired by traditional Slovenian design. Each egg contains 2,500 to 17,000 tiny holes made with a small electric boring tool. Grom calls his ivory shelled masterpieces Easter eggs.
While Slovene artisans usually paint their eggs using a technique called drsanka by lightly scratching intricate patterns into the surfaces of colored eggs, carving them was solely Grom’s idea.
