Silvy Weatherall is a Galloway artist who finds use for objects that have lost their function or have been discarded, this has lead her to work with feathers, disarticulated animal and bird skeletons, old jewellery and broken ceramics.
This photograph is one of a series in which Silvy catalogues through imagery an antique collection of eggs. Photographed here are a pair of pale buffish-stone dappled coot (Fulica atra) eggs.
