Artist Description

About the Pysanky Technique
Pysanky (Ukrainian Hand-Decorated Eggs) are made using the ancient method of wax resist batik. Lines of wax are applied to the emptied eggshell, using a small tool called a kistka. The egg is then put into a dye bath, with the wax protecting the covered shell from subsequent color changes. This process is alternately repeated (wax/dye/wax/dye). After the full design is applied, the wax is removed (by melting it over a flame and wiping off) to reveal the bright colors underneath. The eggs are then coated with several coats of UV Protective coating. I also create unique jewelry handcrafted on real eggshells, using the very same pysanka method to create the designs.
About me and my shop:
Writing pysanky is a tradition that has been observed in our Ukrainian household ever since I can remember. It is a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation of Ukrainians for well over two-thousand years. I am proud to carry on this tradition. I create pysanky with traditional patterns, but I also enjoy creating fresh interpretations and original designs (like my beach-inspired seashell patterns).
