Our most valuable resource


    We select our gourds at various farms from Georgia to California, A hard shell gourd is a fruit which belongs to the squash melon family. After a drying time of over one year the gourd is ready. Our techiques use fine detailed woodburning,etching and carving.

The colors are applied using translucent inks, dyes and stains. Finally, the work is protected with several coats of poly/varnish. With reasonable care our work should give you a lifetime of enjoyment.
