Hand-Carved Easter Egg Made of Pinewood
Wooden eggs. Hand-carved.
These hand-carved Easter eggs come from the Polish part of the High Tatras, a mountain range of the Carpathian Mountains. The eggs are made of pinewood, which the wood carvers acquire from the municipal forestry services. They provide the wood carvers with wood from the near mountains from trees which were damaged by storms. The artisan first creates the workpieces in egg form out of this wood; then the wooden eggs are coloured using plant-based textile dyes before the design is carefully carved out of the wood using a notching chisel – in our case, a regional pattern in the form of stylised edelweiss blossoms.
The surface is given its shimmering lustre by a final polish of lacquer and ethanol, which is also applied by hand.
