MesquiteGourds' Shop Announcement

Welcome! The year has flown by and the beginning of winter shows the snow on the San Francisco Peaks. Trees have turned color and begun to loose their leaves. The year has been busy and along with making some of the old favorites I've added some new designs and techniques. I've been working on ornaments of all shapes, sizes and patterns. They are fun to hang throughout the year, with themes for Christmas as well as spring, summer and all seasons! There are a lot of new bowls reflecting our southwestern heritage, and I am always happy to customize for you. Thank you for looking, and remember that your purchase also supports a family-owned and run gourd farm in central Arizona's Gila River Valley!

The versatility of gourds makes them one of my favorite natural materials. They can be painted, dyed, carved and woodburned, and I love trying new techniques so each one of my pieces is unique! I grow many of my own gourds and strive to use locally obtained natural materials that reflect respect for the environment while adding to the artistry of the completed work. Gourds have been grown for centuries in many parts of the world. They continue to be an important component of the culture as a food and for utilitarian and art purposes. A gift of Nature to the Ancients and to us, gourds are still a lovely gift for all occasions!
