It is Easter Egg season so I am excusing myself for featuring and talking about so many eggs. These here are by Carla Tomaszewski. An American egg artist skilled in Eastern European egg decorating techniques. Pictured below is her scratched Easter Egg range. A technique which I have attempted several times and left alone as Ihave found it too time consuming and at times frustrating and difficult to master. Carla tells me one egg can take her three hours to make. I'm not suprised judging by the level of detail. I have been greatly inspired by these eggs and will be having another go at this technique. I love these especially because they look exactly like the traditional Polish eggs. Technique and design is true to tradition. Something Carla is very passionate about. Go to her website here and you'll see a great deal of information about Poland and its history and traditions.
Hello, my name is Kasia and I have been running Laikonik since 2005 handmaking and selling my products through various retailers. Most of my products feature Polish folk art motifs which have been my inspiration for many years. This blog is about random explorations of all the lovely Polish folksy things that I love. Crafts, history, arts and my own contemporary takes on Polish traditions and decorations.
