Slovenian artist, Franc Grom creates egg art that can compete with Fabergé eggs in their unique beauty. In fact, he continues old traditions in modern art. He uses an electric drill to pierce shells and make his works even more sophisticated. Being hand-made, Grom’s eastern eggs are very precious and couldn’t be compared with any of mass devices.
He is famous for his talent, creativeness, using of modern technologies and, most important, patience. The results are stunning and as laborious as the finest of craftsmen from centuries past. The eggs that Grom creates have approximately 2,500 to 3,500 holes. Inspired by traditional Slovenian designs, he has been known to pierce a shell as many as 17,000 times. Who would have thought that something so delicate could be made even more fragile and precious?
