A gourd made into a bowl with a hand-embroidered design on it.
This gourd bowl, though simple in design, has a definite WOW! factor. The background is natural in color, and the inside is decoupaged dark green. The design is straight forward, with spirals and diamonds in green, yellow, and orange thread. A small rim around the top adds yellow and orange zigzags.
The WOW! happens when the viewer realizes the amount of hand labor necessary to complete the project. The design had to be drawn onto the gourd, first. Then holes had to be drilled at even intervals for the whole design. Finally, the thread was sewn on, which wasmade difficult by the need to work from inside the gourd half the time. The finished item is sleek and stylish.
Please think of this item as art; it was not made to hold food or liquid.
