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.
Loving the whole process of gourding, growing, drying, cleaning. Love interviewing the gourds to see what they want to be when finished. Woodburning is so relaxing for me, like a good novel, just can't put it down. So glad to have so many people now who I can go to if questions arise.

Thank you Jeanie for inviting me to be your friend.

I would also like to thank you for the comment you made about my gourd.

I'm only a beginner to gourd art and I like to try different techniques.

Hello Jeanie!

Thanks for the friend request (and the kind compliment)! It's always a pleasure to connect with fellow gourd artists! I look forward to seeing your work as you progress!

Jeanie, I'm glad to have helped. I wish you lived closer - we'd have our own patch meeting and do this technique! Good luck! I bet if you asked around on this site you'd find someone to teach you . . .

Hi Jeanie, thanks for the compliment on my hammered copper shard gourd. I used liver of sulphur on the copper, to give it a sort of an antiqued feel and then quickly ran it through a torch flame, which makes the copper turn colors. You have to do it fast though, because if you leave it in the flame too long, it just turns black... if that happens, you can scrub it off with steel wool and start over.

Greetings from Albany, OH! Thank you for your kind words.

You can ask me anything at anytime -

The rim on "Burn and Weave" is made of reed. I learned this rim in a class at the OH Gourd Fest call "Gretchen Rim" (and I don't remember the lovely lady who taught me this). It's a weaving technique where and even number of holes are drilled around the rim of the gourd and then the ends of a piece of reed are inserted from the outside toward the inside of the gourd (both ends inserted in adjacent holes and pulled through carefully so the ends are the same lengths). Once reed is inserted into all the holes the weaving begins inside the gourd. Each round is completed, one after another (so this is not one continuous weaving but row upon row). As the weave progresses it comes up the inside of the gourd, over the top and down the outside until the desired length is achieved. The reed must be kept wet during the entire weaving process or breakage occurs. I find keeping the reed wet to be the trickiest part of the process. Also, I think the larger the gourd, the easier it is to do the weaving. Initially, with all the reed pointing toward the inside of the bowl and hanging out and overlapping, handling it all in a systematic way is important to keeping the process orderly.

I have heard this rim is also a finishing weave for the rims of baskets.

Hope this helps!
