Diane Boschee

Scrimshaw Style

Hand drawn and etched with a needle on smooth and polished ostrich eggs, Diane’s designs are done in the style of the ancient art of scrimshaw.   This art came about when sailors on sailing ships would pass the time by carving on whale or walrus bone using sail needles and captain’s log India ink, which is waterproof.  This unique artwork involves hours of sanding and polishing the eggs, then scratching, inking, and finally sealing each piece.
