I grow most of my own gourds but I go to Casa Grande, AZ for the big show with my sister when I can.  I have a sheet with about 30 gourds in it hanging from my garage rafters that I work with.  It takes me weeks with my old equipment and antique dyes to finish something.  Locally, I try to make the Folsom Gourd show each year and the craft and art show at the Sacramento convention center for new ideas and talking with some top of the line gourders.

I'm not that far from you.  A few years ago I had a small cabin in Rancho Tehama but sold it to buy the house I have now.  Son and family lives in Ft. Bragg.

Thanks for the friend invitation. I notice you like to use the natural marking of the gourd in your art. I love all the mold and love to enhance it. How are you doing with the drawing? I saw your concern and Bonnie's recomendations. I would like to take some drawing and painting classes, but that involves time and money. From what I see you are doing great with your drawing. I will quit for now as I am starting to ramble.

I can see you love wood-burning too, love the elephant piece and, well just all your art work.

I only just now found out how to reply back to all the thoughtful comments I've been getting from my work. I thank you and hope to be as good as each of you one day. Now that I'm unemployed I have more time to pratice and keep an eye on my field of gourds. Any idea how to control weeds in a 1-2 acre gourd patch??

Oh Vicky...........You all were such troppers through it all, If you are at all down here again when the climate is better feel free to join me in another class without cost, that should make it much more fun for ya, but thanks for coming I enjoyed each person who attended.

Vickie, So glad you came to the class and enjoyed what we did. I'm just sorry the weather was so bad. Hopefully what you learned can be used somehow with what you do. Thanks for taking the class.

Mahalo, Vickie -

I am surrounded by bamboo out here in the jungle, so it shows up a lot (in both subject matter and materials) in my gourds. This was one of the few gourds I've found that was thin enough to carve through. Wish I could find/grow more like that - the Welburn gourds are beautiful, but just too thick for that kind of carving.

vickie, i first drew my design on the gourd, then cut it out with my micro jig saw, sanded the edges smooth. applied the color and varished. the votive candle is placed in asmall glass container which is then sat inside the bottom part of gourd.

Thanks Vickie, You know...............I have seen gourds with similar designs(working from the inside out except the gourd is usually a pueblo with a spanish theme bit there are no people inside. I usually make the gourd act as a blanket or cave with people huddled within. People or figures are my thing so however I can fit it on a gourd I'm gonna try it.

Hi Vickie, the Navajo baby is about 9 inches wide by 8inches tall. This is a good size for me to work on. A little bigger is okay too. If it's much bigger, I feel I need to price it higher and thus harder to sell in the gallery. Same goes for smaller pieces in that smaller comes out to lower prices.
