Gourd bowl Hand Painted functional art handmade metal stand alcohol ink home decor dried ornamental gourds
This is a hand painted gourd bowl with a metal base. I have included 3 dried small gourds but you could use this bowl for potpourri, pine cones, other small or decorative gourds, wrapped candy, a candle, silk plant, or even use it for storage of keys or other small items on a table!
The inside is painted and sealed white but it is not food safe and water will cause it to rot. There is no lid.
I grew this gourd in my garden a couple of years ago and after curing and cleaning, decided to make it a bowl! I painted it in several layers of alcohol ink and then followed it with three coats of a non-yellowing varnish.
I glued the bowl to a silver metal stand. It is recommended you pick this up by the stand and not the gourd, as the stand is probably heavier than the gourd!
Overall height including stand: 5 1/2"
Across at widest point: Approx. 6"
Opening, diameter: 4 1/4"
*****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 am happy to combine shipping!! Please contact me with any questions.
