Diepkloof Ostrich Eggshell Cup on Display at The Pump House Regional Art Center

My latest eggshell sculpture, “Diepkloof Ostrich Eggshell Cup”, has been accepted into The Art of the Drinking Vessel Juried Art Exhibition at The Pump House Regional Art Center, 119 King Street, La Crosse, WI. The Reception for the exhibition is being held Saturday, March 17, 2012 from 5 – 7pm. My piece will be on display and for purchase from March 15, 2012 to April 14, 2012 at The Pump House.

The inspiration for this cup came from engraved fragments from ostrich eggshell containers found at the Diepkloof Rock Shelter in South Africa. The eggshell fragments date to around 60,000 years ago. The fragments are believed to represent some of the earliest use of symbols by humans.

Come and see The Art of the Drinking Vessel art exhibition at The Pump House.
