Gourds are the perfect medium for me. I can carve them, use pyrography, paint, weave, dye or write on them. I can do tribal art, primitive motifs, cutesy stuff, patriotic themes, goth looks, or whatever suits my fancy. So far I haven't run out of ideas!

Making a marionette
I finally figured out a project that can use the curly dipper gourds I bought. I'm making a gourd marionette. The curving dipper gourd is just right for the arm and leg sections.
