Gourd Harvest. Unique gourd basket featuring a growing gourd plant originating at the bottom, with intertwined stems creating a special handle. This piece encompasses pyrography techniques, with supporting carving and cutting features.
It’s that wonderful time of year again! Well, at least second most wonderful. Fall is here, and with it is Halloween! The biggest things right now are the Halloween gourd lamps. Here are the first two, Halloween Gourd Lamp no.2 & Arachnogourdia 1. * http://www.facebook.com/snpcrafts
Enjoy the season 🙂
Nature inspired gourd basket, featuring dual connecting fern stems as a handle. The bowl includes symmetrical elements of pyrography, cutting, and carving. The perfect companion on the trips over the river to grandma’s house.
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!
Hard at work creating and making. Big things (hopefully) coming soon 🙂
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 🙂
