RIM VIEW, "Warty" Gourd w/Perched Polymer Lizard
This whimsical gourd, “Rim View”, is a contemporary Southwest gourd vessel that would be a fun addition to your home. The piece measures 7.5” x 6.5”. You could add dried stems or flowers of your liking to enhance the functionality of the piece.
After cleaning the outside of the dried gourd, a very time consuming process, the rim was cut with a mini jig saw. Then the inside, which is filled with membranes and seeds, was cleaned with a ball cleaner and drill. Hand sanding finished the interior job and then I sprayed the interior with a paint sealer. The outside of the gourd was then dyed with ink dyes and the ‘warts’ enhanced with a shimmer technique. Several coats of sealing spray were applied to protect the beauty of the gourd for years to come. The jaunty lizard was attached securely to the rim.
Rim View would look stunning as an accent piece in your home! The contemporary Southwest style is iconic as well as lighthearted, and sets this piece apart from the ordinary. Please clean with a duster or soft cloth and enjoy for years to come.
