Gourd Sculptures
Welcome to the Gourd Sculpture section of my website! Below you can browse the various types of
gourd sculptures I create. Every sculpture is handmade from a gourd or several gourds mixed with
other materials such as wire, clay, and fabric. Each is one-of-a-kind and specially signed, dated, and
numbered according to the series. These are just a sampling of the many creatures I've created. The
collection keeps growing! You can see what's available for sale in my onlines shops linked to the right.

Thank you, enjoy! And feel free to
contact me if you want a custom creation of your own!

But first, a little information about gourds...

Gourds are a naturally occurring plant related to squash and pumpkins. The plant itself is a long vine
that can grow between 20 to 40 feet long depending on the breed. There are hundreds of different
breeds of gourd, each growing a unique shaped fruit. The fruit is the gourd, and in each one is a
papery luffa containing many seeds. Unlike their cousins though, gourds cannot be eaten. They grow
a hard, wood-like shell that becomes hollow when dried. When a gourd is properly dried and
cleaned, the hollow shell won't decay or degrade when taken care of and it's ready to use in any
form of art or craft! Gourds can be tiny, as small as 3 inches tall. Or they can be massive, as big as
tables! They can be smooth, lumpy, ridged, round, barbell shaped, and more!

Gourd are amazing - and so is what you can do with them.
