Under the hand of master artist S.J. LeBlond, the ancient Ukrainian craft of Pysanky eggs becomes fine art. Exceptional in the world of egg art, her works can be found in private galleries and collections throughout the world.
Created on real egg shells (usually a goose egg or a turkey egg), Ms. LeBlond uses the traditional method of applying hot beeswax with a stylus, and then dipping the egg in dyes of progressively darker shades. The glory of the finished design is revealed when the artist removes the wax with a candle flame. All eggs are limited editions.
