Ostriches

All ostriches are unique and made from real, untreated eggs. The eggs currently used are from ostriches in many different designs, but common is the quirky and humorous. Some eggs appear completely ceramic and others more rough.

Ostrich eggs by Hans Felthaus.   For 6 years, Galleri Charlotte Tønder has sold these quirky sculptures. Visit the gallery in central Copenhagen K or explore our online gallery   where you can see a wide selection of the many unique sculptures.

Gallery Charlotte Tønder also always has a large selection available. Remember the online shop is open 24/7 and all sculptures can be purchased through this one. Fast delivery, typically ml. 1-3 days. Easy, safe, free and simple.

The eggs currently used are eggs from Ostrich, Emu, (greenish eggs from the Australian ostrich), Nandu, Chickens, Seagulls, Quail, Greenery, Dwarf Hen. Another elegant line in the ostrich series is ostriches of gold and bronze, with feathers and without. His Felthaus signature is "The Egg."   Which is an ostrich egg that is sawn out (in hand) like Arne Jacobsen's chair Egg. In the chair sits a very proud, and relaxed ostrich with the legs over crosses.

All the eggs are filled with cement, in which he has cast respectively. legs and head.

The casting process begins with the sculpture forming the ostrich head and neck into cheese wax. This is then moulded into a gypsum mixture and burned into a ceramic oven. Then the bronze bar is melted into a crucible and the liquid bronze is poured into the mold. Then the shape is broken and the bronze head is ciseled. Finally, the sculpture as described above is assembled.
