The problem here is that I'm addicted, like many or most of you. These silly things that grow in just a season of time can last for many many years if handled with care. I found my artist when I found the gourd! I work under the name "The Copper Gourd" I am a gourd artist and member of the Show Me Gourd Society & AGS.
Thats great Theresa, everyone is working hard to get things ready for the festival in april, we are hoping for a even bigger and better show than last year. Glad you will be able to attend this year, see you there.
Thank you, Theresa! It means a lot to know that people like my work. I am coming up on one year of working with gourds. I have soaked up a lot of techniques my first year, woodburning, carving, painting, dying, weaving, etc. There is still a lot to learn as gourds have endless possibility. I would like to get into more 3D carving as carving is my favorite.
Welcome to Gourd Art Enthusiasts. I have been a member for almost a year and have found it to be a well managed site. Those in charge seem to do a great job. The photos are so inspiring and the communication is great. I do mostly woodburning but enjoy carving and plan to explore other media. My wife and I are retired school teachers and are happy to have time to pursue our crafts. Once again welcome.
Welcome, Theresa. We’re glad you’re here. There are many activities and discussions in which you may want to participate. Look around and join in. Add some photos of your own, but please no more than 25. And have fun! The GAE rules are located on the right side of the main page. Darlene
