J Brooke Patterson is an Oakland artist whose medium is eggshells. She uses quail, duck, turkey, partridge, guinea and chicken eggs.
She sculpts intricate scenes nestled inside these delicate containers. Originally her creations were made for friend and family and in 2000 she was able to make this a full-time artistic pursuit. You can find a list of galleries and events where you can see her work first hand at her website.
