Hand Painted Gourd bowl lid lidded functional art handmade acrylics pendant eggshell mosaic metallic silver blue home decor
This is a hand painted gourd bowl with lid (2 pieces). This is functional art and would look great in just about any setting!
I grew this gourd in my garden a couple of years ago and after curing and cleaning, decided to make it a functional bowl! Original stem intact.
I painted this in acrylics using metallic blue, metallic silver, and copper highlights. There is an eggshell mosaic rim also with a blue wash over it. The beautiful hanging pendant is a perfect embellishment. All colors complement each other!
The inside of the lid and bowl are painted black and sealed. Sits flat.
The outside has three coats of non-yellowing sealer/polyurethane to maintain the design and color. Signed on the bottom by the artist (that would be me!)
Use this bowl to display pine cones, small gourds, wrapped candy, or potpourri or use it as a cute little storage bin!
With the lid on, overall height: 11 1/2" to top of the stem
Across at widest point: Approx. 9"
Opening, diameter: 4 3/4"
Bottom of the bowl, height (without lid): 7"
*****All of my gourds are homegrown! It is a year-long process - I start seeds in April, transfer to the 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 art for the home!!
