Gourd decor, faux succulent, planter, plant holder. Maranka,hand painted art, unique gift idea. Coral, orange, handmade. Hardshell gourds.
For sale is a beautiful hand-painted hard-shelled Maranka gourd made into a planter/ stationery vase.
There is a faux succulent included, which could be removed and substituted for a silk plant, candle holder, etc. It will sit flat or you could hang it but be careful with the stem if you do it that way. The original stem is intact.
The design is painted using a combination of acrylics in pink, yellow, orange, peach with silver highlights. It is coated with 3 layers of non-yellowing glossy polyurethane to protect the design. So pretty and unique, one of a kind!!
Measures 11" tall or long, about 5" across. The opening is about 1 1/2". This gourd is for indoor use (exposure to water not recommended). If you wanted to put a live plant in it, you could line the inside first with plastic.
*****All of my gourds are homegrown! It is a year-long process - I start seeds in April, transfer to the garden end of May, 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 art for the home!! I only sell gourds that have passed a strict inspection for hardness and free of cracks, etc.
Please contact me with any questions. Thanks!
