Mike, to say I like your gourd figures would be an understatement. Which is why I'm inviting you to contribute to a gourd book project I'm working on. It deals with gourd figure construction techniques. The artist would show the selection of gourds used and step-by-step construction, etc. Too much info for this space. If interested, please e-mail me.
I look forward to meeting you too and seeing your art in person. I hope you will join us as a teacher and a private vendor! Here's to much success, which is a given in my opinion, in your beautiful gourd art and sharing what you have learned with others as a teacher!
