You've seen garden art, but how about art from the garden? As a self-taught pyrographer, I strive to make the most out of each natural canvas that is a gourd. I use a range of burning techniques, carving and cutting to make each gourd something special and unique. The designs encompass elements of symmetry and inspiration of nature. The wide variety of sizes and shapes allows for gourds to be used for an assortment of items. It is a privilege to create a piece inspired by nature with materials provided by nature.
