Eggs are commonly used for food consumption; the external layering of it is discarded, but the artist of Nosigner egg art display brings an unprecedented use for the scrapped shells.
The shell-light installation entitled 'Rebirth' is made from real eggs, which were probably used to make a really big omelette. The fragility that usually accompanies the eggs are somewhat non-existant, since the egg shells disperses the weights. The post-yolk product kind of makes you want to make your very own egg lamp from all those bacon and egg breakfasts on your daily commute.
With so many discarded products that come from making a meal, creating a household product with some functional and aesthetic use could be something many stay-at-home parents could look into.
