Floral from Fire

Introducing Floral from Fire, my first hangable gourd art piece. This flowery creation was born from a need to create a piece that could hang, rather than sit like most of my other items, for Artworks “Dually Exposed show” at the Presbyterian Church in Bowling Green, KY. I was partnered with a great photographer, Howard Margolis. Our showcase featured Mr. Margolis’ floral photo, and my pyrography gourd interpretation.

I hope you enjoy 🙂

Colossus

This is “Colossus”. Created November 2014. Named for the size of the piece and the columns that are integrated into the design, which are reminiscent of Greek or roman architecture. This gourd bowl is topped with a natural leaf inspired lid, because nature is above all my inspiration. With a little deeper meaning to the name as well, this piece is a “thank you” to my wife, who has been a colossal inspiration to my artistic ability, and the one that introduced pyrography into my life.

Gourdament & Ornament time!

It’s that time of year again. I’ve already began making this year’s ornaments, and taking orders for customized and personalized ones. There will be many different styles and designs, but the most popular will be the penguin, followed by zebra and leopard prints. If you’re interested in ordering, send me a message on Facebook, or email snpcrafts@gmail.com.

August 90th

Help me wish a very Happy 90th Birthday to my awesome Grandmother! She’s a great strong woman.  As a special birthday present, she’s getting my most recent gourd piece.

This one is called August 90th. As we enter the great autumn months, leaves will begin falling all around, mixing with the patterns of the world, just like in this piece.

Happy Birthday Grandmother!
