More than Gourds

So do I anything other than items with gourds? Yes I do. Among the many items I make with wood are my handmade boxes, made from recycled pallet wood. Yep, recycled, because I love being environmentally friendly with most things I make. Custom orders are always welcome. http://www.facebook.com/snpcrafts

One thing I’ve workedon in the past is wooden spoons. After searching for a more local maker, I have finally found a Kentucky maker! These are some of my recent pieces. Keep a lookout for more to come!

Wood Burning Class #3: Candlesticks

Wood Burning Class #3: Candlesticks

This year marks another year of growth as an artist. I’ve began teaching pyrography (woodburning) classes at a local gallery here in Bowling Green, KY, Gallery 916. The classes are going to be held on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. The classes are labeled under Learn & Burn: Wood Burning, and are meant to share the art of wood burning, while burning various projects. The next class will be creating this set of wooden candlesticks. So if you’re in the Bowling Green, KY area, and want to learn all about this awesome art form, then check out the Learn & Burn classes! http://www.facebook.com/learnandburnart

SnP’s Gourd Lamp #1

SnP's Gourd Lamp #1

I’ve finally joined the latest push in gourd art, I made a gourd lamp. Just as in any type of gourd art, the possibilities of a gourd lamp are endless. It’s truly amazing to see the lamps that are created all around the world. For my first lamp, I chose to go with a swirl-type pattern, incorporated my favorite features, such as the carving, various patterns, and the quilt-like patterns that have come to be a constant in my work. The coloring is unique…eye shadow. My wife almost threw out an entire pallet of many colors, and I had to try before seeing material get tossed away (of course I love to recycle and reuse). I then incorporated various holes for the light to escape.

I hope you enjoy 🙂
