The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt was a creative charity initiative which initially launched in London in 2012, then again in Dublin, Ireland in 2013 and finally in 2014, took place in New York. Hundreds of giant fiberglass egg sculptures, each designed by globally renowned artists, designers, architects and brands were placed throughout each of the cities during the Easter period. Each Faberge Big Egg Hunt event culminated in a grand auction where many of the giant egg sculptures were sold with proceeds going to various charities*.
Faberge Big Egg Hunt Artist Easter Eggs
Today I’m sharing with you several of my favorites from the New York Faberge Big Egg Hunt.
The 30″ tall fiberglass eggs were created by 3E Eye Studio and given to each artist who could then decorate them as they wished.
Some simply painted the eggs with acrylic paint and others add more complicated textiles, sculptural elements and more.
