Born of the African ostrich, this ancient material has been transformed by Avoova artists into a luxurious decorative finish that surpasses organic veneers from around the world for both beauty and functionality. Extraordinary in design, this skull was exquisitely hand-crafted, clothed in a seductive mantle of ostrich eggshell by a talented South African artist. In a complex and intricate production process, hundreds of fragments of this extraordinary material were put together to give this piece a unique look. This creation is truly celebrating the beauty of nature and art.
Committed to keeping production in the Karoo where it first began, Avoova sources eggshell from reputable, local ostrich breeders from hatched or unfertilized eggs; a process that is both sustainable and environmentally friendly. Each piece is carefully handcrafted by a team of skilled designers and artisans, who work the shards of shell into a myriad of textures, colors and patterns.
