The Brass Egg
Made by hand in England from solid brass, the Brass Egg is a tactile object for your home or desk.
The Brass Egg is a minimal, geometric object inspired by nature’s life-giving form. Abundant in nature, the ovoid recalls both the egg and seed. This organic shape has been celebrated since antiquity by cultures all over the world, and endures today as a symbol for regeneration and hope.
Handcrafted from solid brass, the Brass Egg responds to the touch with weight, warmth and motion. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc with a bright gold-like appearance, making it a striking alternative or companion piece to the Copper Egg.
Measuring 65mm by 48mm, the Brass Egg fits perfectly in your palm as you muse on ideas and challenges, and makes an attractive paperweight when you reach a solution.
Over time the metal will age naturally, developing a rich, dark patina that is unique to your touch. If you prefer your egg to shine, the brass can be polished and waxed to reduce oxidisation. For care instructions, see Care, above.
Brass has been recognised for centuries for its bactericidal properties, making the Brass Egg an ideal gift for those working in sensitive environments.
