Hand Crafted Gourds

I have been working with gourds for nearly 20 years. Around 2008 I decide to start selling my creations. It was at that time my husband Ed joined me in the crafting of the gourds. Soon we were a team. I design the gourds, while Ed does the cutting and cleaning of them. After the gourd is cut and cleaned the painting, staining, wood burning begins. While Ed does the base painting and staining, I take care of the wood burning and painting the faces. All of the hats, scarfs, bows, etc. are still made by myself. The final touches are putting everything together. The end result is a handcrafted holiday gourd. Each gourd is so unique that you will never get two alike.

    I have been painting since I was a child. I love it. I started with ceramics, then wood until I got a hold of a gourd. I enjoy decorating our home for the holidays and gourds give me the unique look I am looking for.

    My wife gave me the challenge of cutting gourds. While it was difficult in the beginning, I truly enjoy it. The most rewarding is when the customer loves what I help create.
