Custom Made

My specialty is custom made gourd art! I find the most enjoyment in making my customer's ideas come to life.

Perhaps you are looking for a memorable gift, a practical and unique piece of art for your home, or you think it's about time you treat yourself to something special. Gourds can be transformed into practically anything you can dream up, and I can transform them for you using a myriad of techniques and embellishments to suit your idea and style.

I have made all sorts of things from gourds including bowls, boxes, baskets, pots, vases, pitchers, clocks, music boxes, wind chimes, lamps, candle holders, luminaries, musical instruments, sculptures, statues, ornaments, wreaths, birdhouses, bird feeders, and the list goes on. I have embellished gourds using all sorts of techniques including carving, woodburning, painting, embossing, gilding, gold leafing, inlay, decoupage, weaving, coiling, sculpting, beading, and the list goes on.

If you have a detailed plan of what gourd creation you would like that's great. Even if you only have a hazy idea I can work with that, too. If you need some inspiration please see my Flickr gourd gallery: I can make reproductions of any of my past gourds if one of them catches your eye. Also, feel free to discuss the particulars of your custom gourd through email:

I have completed a gourd from start to finish in as little as a week, but some gourds have taken me almost a month. Please let me know if you have a deadline for the arrival of your custom gourd. Feel free to contact me about this concern before you place an order. Be assured that I have never been late for a deadline.
