GOURD art homegrown homemade hand painted foil BOWL copper black metallic Gothic home decor rustic ornamental
This is a unique bowl that I made from a dried gourd!
The inside is painted/sealed black. There are a few decorative gourds (that I also grew) inside that have been painted black/copper to match. It sort of has a Gothic feel to me!
On the outside, I used a foil technique with layers of foil over foam shapes for a 3D look! Then I covered it in copper and black metallic paints and inks, followed by 3 coats of a semi-gloss varnish.
Measures 5" tall; opening is 5" diameter and at widest point bowl is about 7".
Comes with five decorative gourds as shown.
*****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!!
I recommend all hand painted/inked/dyed gourds be kept out of direct sunlight, to help preserve the colors.
I am happy to combine shipping!! Please contact me with any questions.
Thanks for visiting!!!!
