Hive (2016) – Gourd Lamp

Introducing “Hive.”

This gourd lamp, created in January 2016, sits 18 inches high (including stem) and is 7.5 inches at its widest point. The name comes from the center design, a series of hexagons drawn out while experimenting with various shapes. The name continues to fit once you notice the different patterns working together to create on work of art, with its inner light shining through.

Growing

Hello All!  

I’ve finally moved up into the “website” world.  I’ve been on Facebook forever, tried just a simple blog, and have been growing my marketing skills along the way.  I’m hoping to continue to update this page, as I’m hoping to make it one of my steady communication homes.  We shall surely see.  But for now, here’s more about me…

As you have possibly read on the Home screen, I’ve began woodburning several years ago.  I’ve grown tremendously since the Christmas ornaments I first made as my first projects.  My current passions lay with creating gourd art, along with custom projects made for others.  As I’ve grown, my skills and passions have also grown.  I’m now at a point that I like to share and help others grow.  In 2014 I’ll be having pyrography (woodburning) classes at a local gallery here in Bowling Green, KY.  The gallery is Gallery 916, and the class series is Learn & Burn: Wood Burning.  As of right now, the classes will be held on 2nd & 4th Mondays, at 6:30 p.m.  The goal of the classes is to teach the art of pyrography through creating various projects.  Each class will be a different project (upcoming class is Custom Clocks: creating your very own custom clock).  Make sure to check out, Like, and keep up with the Facebook page designated for this class series: http://www.facebook.com/learnandburnart

Thank you 🙂
