a good egg for charity
We are delighted to be taking part in The Big Egg Hunt again this year.
Last year, eggs designed by leading lights in the art and fashion worlds, including Sir Peter Blake, Zaha Hadid, Marc Quinn and Vivienne Westwood raised over £1million in a charity auction. Andy’s egg was one of the highest bidding designs, selling for £10,500.
Andy has designed another unique sculptural egg for this year’s event. The Wrong Way Round is a beautifully crafted 70cm tall egg covered in a textured bronze patina.
Andy explains: ‘An egg marks a new life, it is impermanent, fleeting and ethereal and is soon destroyed in the process of its very purpose. But this egg turns everything around: being encased in a bronze shell it has an enduring permanence and with this it becomes an ancient artefact, something that will last forever. The rich patina and tactile surface have the warmth and richness of newly cast bronze but as it is caressed by the hands of time and curiosity it will age and improve – the antithesis of a living egg.’
The Lindt Big Egg Hunt will run from 12th February until Easter Monday (1st April). Take part and help raise vital funds for charity! To find out more about the project go to www.thebigegghunt.co.uk
