Ahh, the ubiquitous egg.
It seems so simple, yet from a geometry standpoint the shape is fairly complex.
After tracing a few real eggs, I decided to try a different approach, using math.
It was a fun little diversion after spending the day making egg stands for the other artists.
The geometry of an egg is quite lovely, a combination of circles and ellipses, held together with a triangle.
Although it is not quite the “golden ratio,” it comes pretty close.
