While working on my next big piece, I’ve been contemplating the art I’ve made during January in the past few years. Not only did I find that the pieces were some of my best, but three of the past four have won an award of some sort!
2014 – Date Night (formerly Colored Pear Illuminated) – 1st gourd lamp, won 3rd place in sculpture at 2014 Celebration of the Arts
2015 – Teddy’s Balloon – made for my little man – 1st place in Gourd Magazine Spring 2017 Craft contest (resulting in featured artist for Summer issue)
2016 – Ascension – Honorable Mention at 2016 Artworks Members Only show
2017 – Dream – My largest piece to date – sold during my first setup at the Kentucky Crafted Market
Stay tuned for this year’s creation 😁
