   Gourds

Gourds have been used as long as 14,000 years ago, in all parts of the world where weather was warm enough for their growth.  Hard-shell gourds were used as containers for liquids and food, as well as utensils, musical instruments and as items of adornment.  They are members of the squash family and after being left in the field to dry, they are harvested and ready for their wooden shell to be cleaned and decorated.

Yvonne’s mother, Carol Y. Cherry, says that, “Each gourd has it’s own spirit and a design within it.  Some gourds shout and others may whisper.”  Carol creatively endeavors to develop and emphasize that design to create a work of art that makes the gourd and artist proud.  Each beautiful work of art is originally designed and crafted to please the senses with shape, subtle natural hues, intricacies and story lines.  Her one-of-a-kind works of art now reside in many parts of the world...order yours today.

Caring for your Gourd: Given minimal care, a cured gourd will last indefinitely.  Treat the gourd as you would a fine piece of furniture.  Dust with a soft cloth and keep out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.
