Michael Croft, Easter Egg Box, n.d., original design 1967, cast, electroplated, oxidized and buffed silver and gold, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase, 1975.148.2A-B
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.
