Kāpiti Arts Guide Listing no. 81
I use vegetable gourds that I have grown and dried over a season, at which time they are ready for crafting. The gourd is then cut open in a design to compliment the shape of the gourd. Holes are then drilled to form the desired pattern and painted in complimentary colours. When tea-lights are lit inside the gourds, they create a peaceful and relaxing environment.
Artistic medium: painted craftwork
