Uniquely hand painted and original "Gourd Art"

Announcement    Welcome to my "Gourd Art" shop. My gourd designs are all original, hand painted pieces. Each piece is unique and different. Since they are hand made, not one is exactly alike. Each piece is signed by me. Many gourds can be made to order. I love painting the "cat" gourds....they make me, and my customers smile! Browse around and contact me if you have any questions or special order requests.

Many people ask me if the gourd will rot. NO, it is already dry, it will NOT rot. Also, my gourds are for decorative purposes. They are not recommended for outdoor use unless it is a birdhouse gourd which is special coated. It is also recommended that birdhouse gourds be brought inside during the winter and wiped down with a damp cloth. They should have a new coat of polyurethane put on them before putting out in the yard in the Spring. You can purchase the polyurethane at any local hardware store.

My gourd bowls are for decorative purposes only. NO, you cannot put food in them. They are nice to display by themselves, on a stand, or to put a silk plant in or you can put potpourri inside them. Do not use real candles in them. You may use battery operated candles inside the gourd bowls. The bowl gourds can also be used to make a dried flower arrangement in. I can also make a custom order where I can add a flower arrangement to your gourd bowl purchase. This would be an additional cost and would be calculated after getting details of exactly what you would like. If you would like any custom order with dried floral arrangement added, then please message me with your request. I will be glad to assist.

Be on the lookout for some NEW ITEMS being added to my store. I am now adding wreaths, painted rocks, and some wooden painted items. I can paint anything, so you can always ask me for any special orders you may have.

If you have any questions regarding my gourds, do not hesitate in contacting me.
