Fishing Around 2

"Love your weaving on this piece, so unique to see one start above the gourd shell. Does the lid just sit on top or did you make a lip for it?"

IGNIS FOLIA - Table lamp

"I to carver a lot of the shell off my gourds, do you use any wood hardener on your gourds to add strength to the "meat"? I added to the carving after it's finished but end up sanding way to much. I have a new lamp shade in the works…"

Keep an eye out for GOURDS

While down in Mountain Home Ark. this past week picking up our father's ashes we woke up to find that someone had stolen the vaniety plate off my truck. The plate reads GOURDS and was issued from Mich. (blue on white) I did call the cops and report it but they didn't do anything else.  I have a replacement on order now that we're home. Just asking for my fellow artist and gourd lovers to keep an eye out for this plate. If you see it hanging on someone's garage or artroom wall you'll know who it…See More

Karen Hundt-Brown replied to Linda Prince's discussion How can I get a flat edge on rim of gourd?
"Use a sanding block. Get a scrap piece of wood, wrap a piece of sand paper around it and use that to even out the edge. You can use any size piece of wood or cut it to the size you need. Good luck can't wait to see pictures."

You're welcome. The longer the leaves the better. This is a very slow coiling but I believe well worth it. I've not seen anyone else use it on gourds. My lidded piece I entered in the competition at TGS, I didn't think it would win but it did get a 3rd place and a comment about it being a different use of materials. I'll have to cut me some leaves when I go back up to our country property.
