Crafters will find creative inspiration right from the very first page, when they glimpse the stunning photos of gallery-quality pieces created by the finest contemporary artists. The practical work begins with a complete guide to choosing and preparing the gourds, and instruction on a range of handsome decorative techniques, including painting, woodburning, and basketry. The distinctive projects include bowls, boxes, birdhouses, purses, sculptures, unusual centerpieces, and holiday decorations. Photographs, actual-size patterns, and detailed instructions accompany each one, but the natural uniqueness of each gourd will make every finished product one-of-a-kind.
