From Handblown Glass Pumpkins, to Carved Gourd Birds…
Handblown Glass Pumpkins by Terri Sigler
Did you know that farmers actually start planting seeds for pumpkins in May? Yes, this fabulous fruit takes a very LONG time to grow – from 75 to 100 days.
And they are picked quickly in Autumn because they stop developing at soon as there are any cold, frosty nights since they are native to Central America and Mexico.
But we’re pretty sure, Terri made her glass pumpkins in less than 100 days, but they certainly look like she spent weeks creating them.
Natural Gourd Birds by Leon Bryant
People always wonder if gourds are considered “wood” or not. Technically they are “very like wood” in that they can be cut, carved, drilled, burned, painted, stained or dyed.
Basically the difference between a gourd art piece and wood artwork is that gourds have two layers: a hard, dark outer layer and a lighter colored, corky inner layer.
Check some of Leon’s beautiful birds below to see what we mean.
