joe easterGreetings from Topeka, Kansas, home of the world’s largest wren. Yes, you heard that right: A giant sculpture of a bird sits nestled in a park near our metal shop. With spring in the air, I decided to make an egg for this bird -- an Easter egg, delivered guerilla style to surprise the community. It is made from lightweight aluminum cut with a CNC plasma cutter.

The egg began as a profile view in Autocad, with rings spaced equally inside oval shapes. Each slice of the egg has a different design. After it was all assembled, it got a couple quick coats of spray paint, giving it quite a kaleidoscope effect.

The photos and video are from a previous season. Please stay *safe at home* this year instead of hunting for this egg. Watch the egg being made:
