Two special features of this nest: the live front edge that also shows tracks made by insects, and the beautiful tigerwood I made the egg from. In case you aren't familiar with the term "live edge," it means the uncut, natural contour of the wood.

This series of pieces started with a tree next to a Seattle freeway dropping its pinecones onto the paved roadway. Nearly every day I would look at the pinecones that were never going to fulfill their purpose and I mused on the contentious border between the manmade and the natural world. Animals and plants adapt to human constructions, including birds nesting on top of light poles and in front of office buildings.

I thought about putting eggs onto geometric "nests" that aren't too friendly. Visually, I love the contrast between the natural eggs and the various nest shapes I made, even though the concept is much pricklier. 

Please carefully note the size! These nests look gorgeous on a shelf, mantel, or in a table vignette but they might be smaller than you imagine.
