    Description

    Self-taught, New Orleans born, gourd artist, Gypsy weaves her mystique into each of her one-of-a -kind gourd creations. Inspired by the unique landscapes surrounding her Louisiana home, she incorporates the embellishments supplied by nature into her coiled bowls, birdhouses and gourd sculptures. Supplies of natural long leaf pine needles, wild grape vine and tendrils, pine cone petals and more are available from her site.

    Texture is the core of my art. Gourds and Baskets are my passion. I incorporate natural and man made texture in my gourd art and have created woven gourd creations. Find out about me and the gourd art I do at my web site.

    Masks created using canteen shaped gourds. They are woodburned, carved and inlayed with turquoise. Embellishments such as conchos, silver, spots, beads, fur and other objects may be used. Exotic feathers such as macaw, parrot, pheasant and turkey are used in the headress. They are made in avariety of sizes.
