Easter Egg Box is an egg-shaped form in buffed silver and gold that opens like a box. Michael Croft decorated the egg with horizontal bands of raised, polished bars. These shiny pieces contrast with the rough, unfinished surface of the metal in between. He used the lost-wax process to create the piece.
