Original design freehand drawn and woodburned (or pyrography) into the gourd. Green embossing on the dragon "skin" and pine needle coiling on the rim. Really cool piece!
Gourds are a product of nature; this particular is a hardshell gourd. Check out the last picture- that is what this type of gourd looks like when it is growing on the vine. Once dried (takes 6-12 months to dry completely) they will turn brown and will look, feel and last for as long as any piece of wood. This gourd was organically grown by me.
The size of this gourd is a about 7" wide and 5.75" in diameter.
