Made for the Big Egg Hunt in Dublin, a charity hunt in aid of the Jack and Jill Foundation, I thought that the giant egg looked like a large piece of pottery, so I wanted to cover it in a design often found on china – the Willow Pattern. From a distance it looked like a decorative china vase, closer inspection revealed a more
interesting story. Within it’s pattern included the characters crossing the Ha’Penny Bridge or past the Poolbeg Towers to the ‘Why go Bald’ sign.
