I have so many talented friends. Joan is well into her last quarter of her life and she is still hard at work carving beautiful emu eggs. The colors that you see are the layers of the egg. .. the dark bluish-green is the outside, the agua is the middle layer and the white is just before you break through the shell. I took pictures of her eggs a few years ago and made her a book… it was my pleasure to get to photograph such fine, detailed work. What’s your passion? Joan has found hers.
