Autumn Bounty Oak Leaf and Acorn Gourd Vase
Autumn Bounty is a beautiful and unique gourd vase with a very special rim treatment--acorn lids with centered seed beads. The oak leaves featured design has been highlighted with special metallic finishes for a dramatic effect. The vase is 9 1/2" high and 8 1/2" wide.
After cleaning the outside of the dried gourd, cutting the rim with a micro saw, and cleaning the inside, the design was hand drawn and then pyroengraved onto the surface of the gourd. Paint techniques using gourd ink dyes and metallic creams were carefully applied and then the gourd was sealed with several coats of protective sealer to provide years of enjoyment. The rim treatment was quite complex. The acorn lids were dried, painted on the interiors and sealed with sealer. Then a small hole was drilled into each lid. A round base of paper rush was attached to the rim of the gourd and then each acorn lid was threaded onto the base with a center seed bead of various colors and attached to the rim, layering the acorn lids closely to completely cover the rush and the rim.
This unusual gourd vase would be a wonderful addition to your home or office. The rustic, natural appeal would fit in any decor, and will bring many compliments. Autumn Bounty should be used as a decorative piece only. It is not food safe. Please clean with a soft cloth or duster.
