The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt

Posted Last Tuesday by Donna Creek

Over 200 giant eggs have been scattered in various locations of London as part of The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt. This is an extraordinary easter egg hunt with huge eggs strikingly designed by leading artists, designers, architects and jewellers, those amongst the list are  Zaha Hadid, Nicky Haslam, Candy and Candy, Mulberry, The Chapman Brothers and Ridley Scott. I have spotted a few eggs already on my journey in to work which intrigued me to read in to more detail about this fantastic egg hunt. Each egg is going to be auctioned for the charities Action for Children and Elephant Family and there is also an opportunity to win the Diamond Jubilee Egg worth over a staggering £100,000.

I have hand selected a few of my favourites in the collection but there are so many more worth taking a look at!

 

Ovo – Fourfoursixsix, EOS (a manufacturer of laser-sintering systems) and Ogle Models – laser-sintered easter egg

 

Chicken – Jason Bruges Studio created this interactive egg which responds to movement

“I wanted to make a piece that was playful not only in the concept but also in the form. This is firstly why I chose not to use the standard fibre glass egg that each artist had been allocated, and instead have the same form remodelled in Perspex, and why the filament reads “œuf”.”

Diamond Jubilee Egg – crafted by Faberge and made from 18 carat gold.

 

This is my favourite egg and I am determined to find this one!
