JRAGourdArt's Shop Announcement

Welcome to the world of JRA Gourd Art.

*Gourds are a product of nature, therefore any gourd will have slight imperfections and no two are alike.

*The gourds that I use are called "hardshell gourds". They are a cousin of squash, cucumbers and melons in the Cucurbit family and the only vegetable that will dry and harden to a wooden like material.

*After a gourd is cured, dried and cleaned it will not rot and last as long as a piece of wood.

*All of the designs are my own, and are freehanded directly onto the gourd. The process is called "Pyrography", more commonly referred to as woodburning.

*All gourds are all finished with a UV resistant sealer to protect the pyrography, and signed on the bottom. The interiors are also sealed but putting food or water in them is not recommended.

* I would be happy to make a gourd just for you, and even personalize it. Will make a special work of art for a wedding, anniversary, birthday etc. Just convo me to discuss details.

*I do not like to repeat designs so any gourd you buy there will be never be another one exactly like it.

*To learn more about me please read my profile. Thank you for hearting me and putting me in your favorites!!
