GOURD Art, bowl, mixed media, eggshell mosaic. Gold, metallic, blue, beaded rim. Hand painted, tabletop, arrangement. Living room decor
This is a hand-painted gourd bowl, painted using metallic acrylic paints. It is a pretty thick gourd and has a decorative, carved opening.
The inside is painted and varnished black. Not for food use and not meant to hold water (it will get mushy). It would look beautiful with a silk flower arrangement for your table, or holding any number of items such as pine cones, potpourri or even smaller gourds!
There is an eggshell mosaic design also painted with a muted wash. The opening is beaded and goes all the way around. Finished with several coats of UV resistant, non-yellowing varnish. Signed on the bottom by the artist.
Height to top is about 6 1/2" tall, widest point across is about 8 1/2" and the opening is about 5" x 3 1/4" in diameter.
*****All of my gourds are homegrown! It is at least a year-long process from starting seeds in April, curing over the winter and then making art!!
