Carly Dellger is currently an artist and K-6 art teacher living on the coast of Lake Michigan. She graduated in 2009 with a degree in drawing painting in addition to her education degree. Crocheting rugs has been a tradition in her family for generations—rugs made by her great grandmother were on many of the floors in her childhood home, and her mother makes rugs as well. Carly wants to use the traditional methods of creating rugs she learned from her mother to create whimsical designs based on food, cartography, geometry, and nature. The Egg Rugg was created in the spirit of surrealism and a good friend’s love for eggs. Enjoy!
Poached, scrambled, fried, or hard boiled, a perfectly cooked egg is the cornerstone of any balanced breakfast, late night snack, or the ever-so-special occasion—breakfast for dinner. Celebrate the versatile foodstuff and add a quirky crack of décor with this handmade rug. Hand-crocheting each yolk with upcycled materials, Carly Dellger uses a freeform technique so each sunny side up silhouette is different from the next. Handmade in Wisconsin.
Made in the USA
