Gourds are a passion of mine because they are such a gift of nature. They have been used for centuries as vessels for storing food. There are some gourds grown in Africa that are large enough to use a baby bathtubs. The very first canteen was a gourd because the water evaporates through the tough shell of the gourd thus keeping the water inside cool. In most of my gourd art, I tend to leave the natural features such as markings as part of my design and tend to go towards nature as my guide as to how I decorate.
