This do-it-yourself how-to is perfect for any beginning gourd artisan to learn the finer points of a gourd, fix their common flaws and put the gourds to good use as accessories around the house.
Provides examples from twenty artists along with information on their tools, methods, and influences.
Gourds -- with their infinite variety of unusual shapes and sizes, and their smooth surfaces -- have provided a perfect canvas for artists in the American Southwest over many years. It's easy to carve, paint, and stain them, and add embellishments like beads and feathers. These beautiful projects, including rainsticks, masks, and bowls, reflect the traditional designs, techniques, and colors that are indigenous to this region.
