Pysanky. A note on pronunciation, despite what you may have heard on television, a supplier of pysanky tools or from an instructor in a local class, “Pysanka” is correctly pronounced “Pih-sahn-kah” with the plural “Pih-sahn-kih”. All with short vowels. The term “pysanky” is not, never was, nor will it ever be correctly pronounced “pie-SAN-kee or pizz-an-ki”
Ukranian Ukrainian Easter Egg...I made several of these eggs (not nearly as complex and gorgeous as the ones pictured here) at a Clergywomen's Retreat in Vermont. Both broke before the egg inside the shell solidified or disappeared...whatever happens to the raw egg inside the shell!
