Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gourds have been used for centuries as containers and decorative objects. Hardshell gourds with brightly painted faces and figures recently have become popular items at craft sales. This book covers growing, harvesting, and curing as well as crafting and finishing. Gourd crafters must work with the natural shape of the gourd, which cannot be reshaped once it has dried, but it can be cut, incised, painted, and embellished. The projects, presented by experienced gourd crafters, are artistic and imaginative and cover all techniques of dealing with gourds.

I came across this book when I first started my gourd adventures. It has been an excellent source of 'how-to' and the beautiful examples gave me creative energy to produce my own.
