Larry Tate's Pysanka Eggs

A resident of Dallas, Larry Tate’s interest in the ancient art of Pysanka Eggs, wax -relief, hand-dyed, ornamental eggs, began seven years ago after receiving one as a gift. 

“It was absolutely the coolest thing I’ve ever seen and it totally intrigued me,” he remarked.  After doing extensive research and ordering equipment, he began making his own eggs.

“It is a painstaking process and my first pieces were less than stellar,” he remarked. 

His perseverance paid off and the eggs took on a life of their own.  Soon, he was displaying his creations at the Dallas Museum of Art and taking private commissions.
