"Very nice. I really like the way your stuff always looks like old pottery, down to the transition from the outside to the inside of the gourd. The use of colors is just the right blend."

Hello Helen, sorry I missed your TXT this after noon. Thank you for the nice comments. I also admire your work. I really like the natural and the painted flower gourds. They both jump off the picture!! I am sure they are stunning pieces in person!!

Here's the link, Helen. It's a cost effective solution anyone can build as opposed to the high cost collection systems on the market. If you're on a budget it helps. It can be built for approximately $32. All the dust and odor stays in the bag and and only gets on your hands and carving tool. One of my students built one and added a plexiglass sheet in the top for even better viewing.
