Gourd art sculpture, hand painted table decor. Crackled deep rust & mahogany. Fireplace mantel art. Decorative birdhouse
Gourd art/decorative birdhouse/sculpture made from what seems to be a dipper/snake/swan?? gourd. I think they may have cross-pollinated! But what a cool shape!
This is a nice hard-shell gourd that I painted with a black base and then a crackle technique with a rust/mahogany color. The stem is black. The gourd is glued to the base. There's a little white bird peeking out of the hole! It is covered in 3 coats of glossy varnish.
Measures about 13 1/2" tall, 9" at the widest point and about 7" deep.
I grow all my own gourds and it is about a year-long process from starting seeds in the Spring, curing and drying over the winter and then creating art!!
