Home Gourd Workshop Information Bird Refs
The following Vases, Bowls, and Gourds are made from aged/dried gourds.
Since I am a wildlife artist, most of my designs are a continuation of what I do
in my two dimensional art. Some, however, are Botanical in nature, yet still likely
to capture ecological balance as that is very important to me.
[Gourds are numbered with "G"; Vases are numbered with "V"]
Designs are carved in and on the gourd. Line is then drawn with a woodburning tool. Color is then applied in a variety of ways using lightfast colored pencils predominantly. Stains are occasionally used in moderation. The final product is then finished with an acrylic protective coat.
