My designs are first drawn on the gourd, then wood burned. I will often use carving to add texture to a design as well. The application of color comes next, using one or a combination of transparent ink dyes, metallic and acrylic paints. Sometimes I add gold leaf, inlaid stones or glass, conchos, pine needles or other botanicals as design elements. The possibilities are endless and each piece is unique.

To see sizes, prices, shipping and more about each piece, click on any image in this gallery, then click on the ‘i’ icon at the bottom of the page. To hide it, click on it again. If you are looking for something specific, such as a gourd with a southwestern style, click on the ‘select tags’ box and choose ‘southwest’ to only display all the gourds in this gallery in that style.

When you find something you’d like to purchase, make a note of the item # and use the ‘Contact/Purchase’ link in the main menu above.
