Profile Information

What is your interest in gourds? Please be specific - one word answers will not be accepted. We block all potential spammers. YOU MUST use both your first and last name on your profile or we will not approve your membership.
There is no limit what can be made from a gourd. There is so much versatility from all the artist with their own interpretations. There is no wrong way or one way to do art. I enjoy working on gourds as much as looking at all the photographs. I love talking to other artist and learning new techniques. Everything I do to a gourd can change from one thing to another, because it is a matter of what I like at that moment.

Just some info.

Just wanted to say this site is really great. There is no limit to everyone's talent. There are so many things that can be done to a gourd and it shows with all the photos. Thanks to all that take the time to look at some of my gourd art.

I have learned and progressed as I go. I love new techniques and I am always adding new gourds. Always welcome your thoughts and ideas. Thanks again.....

Gloria

Will you be traveling to the gourd festival Weurtz Gourd farm in AZ? I am on my way (via Texas). Looking forward to all I might learn there. Hope to see you-

It would be great if the ones in the show that are on GAE would post their entries.  There were so many different styles this year.  Very diverse and creative.

Gloria, I didn't get to take more photos.  I had trouble with my camera and couldn't get it to work right.  Sorry.

Congratulations, Gloria.  Your Wild Buffalo won an Honorable Mention and at least one of yours, don't remember which, has been sold.
