Marta Burckley - Gourd Art & Baskets
I love gourds - big ones, small ones, smooth ones, bumpy ones….I love them all! While I may gussy them up a bit with fabiric or cord or beads, they are still recognizably loved gourds!
Earlier in my life I was a potter. I get the same satisfaction from a nicely embellished gourd that I did from a well thrown and glazed vessel.
The gourds I use are grown in the part of the world that we live in - the Southwest. I think they reflect the beauty that we are so fortunate to have all around us.
