EGG BOX


The egg box is soft enough to hold and protect the eggs inside but strong enough to withstand handling, transportation and storage from farm to home.


HISTORY

Egg boxes are made from paper pulp, usually recycled from newsprint in a process invented by newspaper owner Joseph Coyle of British Columbia in 1911.


MAKING

Paper pulp is sprayed into a mould and a vacuum is applied to remove excess water. The vacuum also sucks the pulp onto the mould, where it is dried. If you look closely you can see the surface in contact with the mould is smooth, whilst the other is rougher and less defined.


DRAWING

Whilst supporting the fragile eggs, the forms create intriguing, interlocking shapes that are interesting to draw.Their interconnected relationship makes them difficult to position as a change in one element can adversely affect others.
