GOURD Art BOWL eggshell mosaic gold metallic black red hand painted home grown decor vessel floral arranging
This is a gourd that I grew myself in my home garden here in Lapeer Michigan.
I decided to turn this into a bowl because of the perfect shape. The inside is painted black with a sealer in it. Not for food use and you cannot use it for water but a lovely silk flower arrangement would be perfect, or use it to hold any number of things such as potpourri, small gourds and more!
The outside is painted black and then an eggshell mosaic design was placed on it. There is a combination of deep dark red and a little bit of white for accent, done in watercolor. The edge has a decorative band and a rhinestone.
Finished with several coats of UV resistant varnish .
Height to top is about 5" tall, widest point across is about 7" and opening is about 3 1/2" in diameter.
*****All of my gourds are homegrown! It is at least a year long process - I start seeds in April, transfer to garden end of May, they spend a summer enjoying the heat (and hopefully rain!) and then they rest and cure in my barn or greenhouse during the winter. In the spring, they are dried out, hard-shelled and ready for creating pieces of functional, whimsy art for the home!!
I am happy to combine shipping!! Please contact me with any questions.
