Eggs and eggplants

Making a realistic egg is not so simple as it seems. My first attempts were very misshapen, and when I tried to correct one it got even worse. Then I found the perfect hand and finger moves and now I can produce eggs like a chicken farm. By the way, I share my secret how I can make the same size of things even after months. I use my pasta machine and my Kemper cutters (or other types) for measuring. I have a book where I jot down which thickness of the machine and which cutter I used for the needed amount of clay for a fruit, a pastry or an egg. Next time I just take my book and could reproduce the same thing.




When I need a split fruit or vegetable I don't even try to make it right away, it always get malformed. I just make the whole  thing and cut in half after baking. Then if the inner structure of the fruit need it I carve some clay out and refill the hole the same raw clay, so I can make the pits or some specific texture and coloring. After that I bake it again. You can see the result on the split eggplant.

Those all all totally fantastic. It was the eggs with the shells that blew me away. I cannot imagine how you could make those broken shells look so real. Great work!

Ilona said...

Absolutely fantastic work! The egg shells just look like real egg shell....perhaps these tiny pieces egg shells are of a real egg ;)?
It is very generous of you to share the tip, how you made the inside of the egg plant. I should not have thought to do it that way, so thank you :D!!
Kind regards, Ilona

I never thought making eggs it's easy...actually I've always stayed away from such a task because I fear the results and you can't really see many boiled eggs around done perfectly like yours. They are the first one I've seen around really realistic. Well done!

I have to say, that I have tried making eggs myself and it is NOT EASY! The more simple the form the easier it is to notice if the egg shape is off! Having said that, I find that your eggs in the shell are wonderful but the eggs being shelled are UNBELIEVABLE! This is a FIRST for me. I have never seen such marvelous work before and the colors the textures are a Joy to behold!
Truly Outstanding and Quality work :D
