Ōamaru Limestone Egg
We have placed a re-order for these, be sure to place your name on the waitlist to be notified.
A good egg. A nest egg. An egghead. Clearly, this primal shape resonates. Commanding and iconic, this solid limestone sculpture can serve as decorative object, doorstop or reassuringly monolithic presence—indoors or out. Made by hand in Ōamaru, New Zealand, a region famous for its Victorian limestone architecture. Small surface anomalies allude to the artisan production. A subtly flattened area keeps the egg stable.
11” long x 9” tall

These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.
