Mini-gourds are beautiful vessels with a smaller profile, usually 2 1/2 – 4” in diameter. They are either cut flat across the top or in a V shape. I burn the design and then add color using transparent ink dyes and/or acrylic paint. Pine needles or other botanicals are added to the rim with sinew. I sometimes add beads or other embellishments. Each one is unique.
