INTRODUCTION

 
High-tech innovation makes it possible! 

 

A particular type of hand-held high tech engraving equipment was developed by an American Inventor in the early 1980's. Because of its ultra high speed (over 400,000 rpm) and low torque, enterprising artists soon discovered that it was perfect for engraving a variety of materials including wood, metal, glass, bone, antler, ivory and even eggshells! 

 

Although a number of artists became proficient in carving eggshells, some very tricky technical problems remained unsolved. Because of the compound-complex and often asymmetrical curvature of eggshells, it has been considered nearly impossible for eggshell sculptors to satisfactorily produce geometrically symmetrical designs. 

 

With years of innovative experience, Richard L. Newell, a.k.a. Richleigh! has not only become a master of sculpting eggshells, but also has successfully pioneered the way for incorporating symmetrical designs into his uniquely sculptured eggshells. Although he does not reveal all his secrets, Newell admits to incorporating a series of optical illusions into his skillfully executed designs. These are most spectacularly rendered in the smaller eggs such as those from ducks, turkeys, peacocks, geese. etc.

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Emu, rhea, ostrich and other exotic eggshells also receive special attention from Newell. His elegant creations have universal appeal and are cherished by art admirers both in the United States and abroad. 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Newell's exquisite masterpieces are reputed to be of museum exhibition quality. Many of his dramatically produced eggshell sculptures have been acquired for private collections by connoisseurs of intricate works of art. The acquisitions you invest in today may become your legacy to future generations.
