Gourd bowl, Hand Painted, functional art, handmade. Metal stand. Alcohol ink, table decor, ornamental gourds. Tabletop. Gift, Mixed media
This is a hand-painted gourd bowl glued to a metal stand. I have included 3 dried small gourds but you could use this bowl for potpourri, pine cones, other small or decorative gourds, wrapped candy, a candle, silk plant, or even use it for storage of keys or other small items on a table!
The inside is painted and sealed white but it is not food safe and water will cause it to rot. There is no lid.
I grew this gourd in my garden a couple of years ago and after curing and cleaning, I decided to make it a bowl! I painted it in several layers of alcohol ink and then followed it with three coats of a non-yellowing varnish.
It is recommended you pick this up by the stand and not the gourd, as the stand is probably heavier than the gourd!
Overall height including stand: 5 1/2"
Across at widest point: Approx. 6"
Opening, diameter: 4 1/4"
*****All of my gourds are homegrown! It is a year-long process - from starting seeds in April, curing and drying over the winter and then making art!
