A friend and I grew gourds on Salt Spring Island 2 years in a row and we ended up with a great selection.  We had small round gourds, various sizes of vase shapes, and curling rock shapes. After cleaning the gourds I dye, paint, print, and carve them. I embellish them with vintage coins, beads, wire, and dyed pine needles
to produce vessels that are functional and lovely. I love the ceramic look of some of these pieces.
