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.
I have learned that working with gourds is much more rewarding than pottery. I am currently using my art to raise money for animal shelters. Last month it was the ASPCA and this month it will be the Twin Counties shelter.
