These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

- Less Than Jake: Is This Thing On?

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

-Chris Orbach: Jane

I could be condemned to hell for every sin but littering."

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Stuff- about five hours, but it took me nine damned eggs to get this one to work right.

Dhamaka-I finally got one to stay together.

Sprocket- a blue LED would be really cool if one could be found with a weensy battery.

bronxelf says:

Thanks. With spring coming I thought if I could make a couple maybe someone might want to buy em.

David says:

Perhaps a hole in the bottom where you can put the end of a fibre-optic strand? It would be like a miniature lava lamp.

Anyway - looks cool. And I suspect it's one of those many things that's really not as impressive to others until they try and do it themselves...

bronxelf says:

There is a hole in the bottom already (that's how the inside of the egg got out) but Id need to build a stand for it (what it's sitting on now is the pen holder for my digipad)

Dhamaka says:

I've come back to look again - it really is lovely

bronxelf says:

11th Mar 2009, 09:47

bronxelf says:

Yep. Now to just get a few commissioned and sold off.

onceupon says:

Hey, Belf, do you mind if I pimp these in my journal? Hopefully you'd get a few commissions out of it. I just cannot get over how fantastic and magical it is.

11th Mar 2009, 14:47

bronxelf says:

Go ahead, feel free.

I did kind of remove the magic though: http://damnedgooddesign.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/eggsperimental/

crickson says:

Fantastic effort, although I'd be terrified of breaking it!

12th Mar 2009, 14:41

Toddy says:

Love it, how did you not break it though??

12th Mar 2009, 14:54

Euphro says:

Well done! That looks fantastic.

12th Mar 2009, 16:22

bronxelf says:

Well so far two people want one, so it's a start. Fortunately, I always have eggs here.

12th Mar 2009, 16:23

bronxelf says:

Toddy- I broke eight of them before I figured out how to not break one. :)

Caine says:

Oh, fantastically beautiful! I used to paint and draw on eggshells years ago. That was tough going, I can only imagine how difficult this was to do. Wonderful. Faved.

That is lovely :-)

bronxelf says:

I got commissioned to do two more, much more elaborate and difficult. So far, no successes to report, unfortunately. I'm not even getting to the carving stages- the prep stages (paint, etc) are what's doing it in.
