Gourd art hand carved cut wood-burned painted Maple leaves all handmade homegrown
Hand cut, carved and wood-burned gourd made as a joint effort between me and my husband - thus the RK in RK Gourd Creations!!! This is a Bottle or birdhouse shaped gourd that I grew, then cured and cleaned in preparation for a beautiful art sculpture! It is a hard-shell gourd and the stem is intact.
My husband did all the carving, cutting and wood-burning and I did the painting. The inside is painted a dark brown in keeping with a Maple leaf/autumn motif! I painted the leaves using acrylic paint and left the background natural. I then covered it in 3 coats of a non-yellowing varnish to protect the colors and design.
Stands 12" high, 8.5" across. It is signed on the bottom.
This gourd was a labor of love and many hours went into the creation of this beauty!! And, we loved every second of it!
This will be double boxed and insured for shipping.
