I recognize the bowl! If you want to move on to drawing patterns in wax per your Lithuanian heritage let me know. I may still have the equipment! Very cool eggs!

Thanks, we may take you up on that. I thought of it, but it seemed a little elaborate for the pilot experiment. (And, to be fair, Cameron did pretty much all the work here.)
