A gourd was given to me by a friend in the spring of 2009 and since has become a passion . I have discovered many wonderful materials that would other wise be discarded that I use. If it is not  a bit of nature then I use all uv resistant  and protective inks waxes etc. My tools are simple– an exacto knife, Dremel with some bits my husband has made for me,sand paper,a small woodbuner and a lot of elbow grease to clean the nasty looking gourds that I so look forward to come in the mail. I get my gourds from a farm in southern California as they are noted for the thick walls. Because I do a lot of carving, I need thick. Each gourd is different and lets me use my imagination.
