Love it when I get home, from PA, and there is a box waiting for me. This cauldron goes perfectly with a witch I bought from you three years ago! I love it!

Love this little bluebird!! I couldn’t resist him. He’s the perfect size and accent sitting on a shelf with other knickknacks. Your painted gourds never cease to amaze me! You and your husband are two very talented people.

Unique & Whimsical Folk Art Gourds
Welcome to Poplar Hollow Studio where folk art is created with gourds! Many of the gourds are grown on our PA farm. These creations include OOAK (one-of-a-kind) sweet old-fashioned santas and snowfolk, Halloween Jacks & witches, whimsical chickens & owls & vintage inspired moons to name a few.
Each piece is individually handpainted with meticulous attention to detail. Often I simply use the gourd in its original form/shape and paint it. Other pieces are mixed media creations where I incorporate hand-sculpted clay and wood with the gourd and use embellishments such as vintage style tinsel, charms and found objects. Each piece is given a handrubbed antique finish to give it an aged look and add to the old-fashioned charm.
A few gourds that are just too pretty to cover with paint I relinquish to my husband, Bob, to create beautiful pyroengraved and carved vessels and luminaries.
I am inspired by the beauty of nature that surrounds my country home & studio. The simplicity of country life on the farm, the changing seasons, an affinity for treasures from a bygone era and holiday traditions...these things are all celebrated in my work.
No two gourds are exactly alike...each is an original collectible, signed and dated. My wish...to light up a face...yours or a special someone...with my folk art.
