Carved Gourd, Bowl, woodburned, handpainted art. Maple leaf, leaves, Autumn fall decor, floral arranging, tabletop, gift idea, Mixed media.
This is a gourd bowl, that I made from a gourd that I grew here at my home!!
After cured, I cleaned it, and then a design of Maple leaves was wood-burned on, following the carving of the leaves. I hand-painted the gourd inside and out, using high-quality acrylic paint. It has 3 coats of glossy varnish inside and out to protect the design. The background is a very dark, deep green, almost looks black.
Measures 6" high, 8" at the widest point and 6.5" deep. The circumference is 25".
This bowl has endless possibilities - a silk floral arrangement, potpourri, pine cones; it will hold anything you can think of and sits flat (not recommended for liquids). It also would look great displayed on a shelf or table and makes a great conversation piece!
I am happy to combine shipping so please check out my other items, of course, 99% gourd-related!
