eggshell spoons


paper, wire, eggshells, works in progress



Something i've been working on these past couple of weeks.



i want to make wings out of you.



John thinks these look like sperms.



Thinking of breath, letting go, keeping steady.

Oh Mien, these are so beautiful, mysterious, delicate. I held my breath when I found you had posted again. Looking at your first pic I thought of wings right away - these spoons could scoop air. And interesting how the egg-shells hold on to their eggness and become something completely different - gaping mouths, or fledlings beaks, strange blooms. Mien's magic! My heart beats faster.

These are magic Mien. The bit of yolk in the bottom of them makes their emptiness so sharp. Fragile longing and air light.
