If you’ve never taken a glance into a gourd artists display tent, you have no idea what you’re missing. And, believe me, that glance quickly turns into a mesmerizing, wide-eyed stare of pure fascination.
It’s not just the limitless and historic functionality of the gourd itself that is so eloquently captured. Until you see for yourself how amazing these talented artists are, it’s nearly impossible to describe the artifacts that are offered for sale here, or to measure the exclusivity of each piece.
The imagination has absolutely no bounds for these artists as they painstakingly and passionately impart their uniquely creative slant onto the common yet versatile gourd. The vast array of jewelry, ageless toys, musical instruments, household implements, daily and seasonal décor, practical tools and gear range from authentic time-period impressions, to our traditional and contemporary ‘Flavor of the Now, to that leap right off the edge into the innovative brilliance of that imagination that has no bounds.
You gotta see this stuff!!! There’s a very good chance you may even catch the fever of taking up gourd art for your very own hobby.
