Gourd Art

As a gourd artist I am constantly experimenting with and learning new techniques.  Each gourd is a ‘journey’ and the ending can be a surprise, even to me.



Glass Art

My favorite technique is the ‘metal overlay’ where I use metal and solder to create a detailed, and dimensional effect on the glass.
