a suspension of …eggs?

Time for the Big Reveal for those of you lovelies who are unable to attend the ITSYBITSY show at Eastern Edge Artist Run Centre – the show of miniature works that make a big dent in your brainheart.

I recently began a series of ity-bity sculptural experiments featuring whole eggs suspended by human hair in tiny metal frames found at flea markets.

Here are the first two, on display at Eastern Edge until the show closes on December 8, 2012. Photos courtesy of Harry Bryan.

Oh hey how ’bout a coupla close-ups:

In other news, this is what our sunny kitchen nook looks like right now (books courtesy of myself and Audrey Hurd). All the great authors, minus the teenage angst:

L-R: Sylvia, Frog, Basil, Rosemary, Margaret.
