The Fallen Egg was first designed for a commission in Crow Wood, a playscape by Davis & White architects for Lyme Park in Cheshire. A total of four willow eggs were created using Rachel's trademark swirl weave and nestled into the landscape around the play area.
Speckled Egg was formed whilst experimenting with a new finer eco-fibre, the 3mm diameter fibre is very flexible and can be applied to many hand processes. Through various tests, a crochet stitch worked so well that Rachel applied it to an entire egg shaped frame. The overlapping stitches create a wonderful deep texture resembling the intricate nests of insects.
