Baba Yaga's eggcup

Eggcup from above
This eggcup is made from a blown goose egg, with cast whitemetal claw legs. I think the finished piece has a certain "Baba Yaga" quality to it.

An artist's easel.

The two horizontal bars can be moved up and down, so that it can hold anything from a miniature to a canvas nearly 5' high.

Hinged joints are pinned with large dowels made from broom handle, so that it folds flat for storage. Apart from the screw threads that work the clamps, there's no metal in its construction.
