Here is a picture of the finished gourd. it has faux leather tooling, faux suede, faux beading, and faux basketry on it.
Here is a picture of the back side of the gourd. I called this one "Culture Clash" since it has native American design elements and western design elements and the bison which was a point of conflict for the native americans and the settlers moving into the west. This is one of the largest gourd pieces I have ever done. It is available at Gallery 29 on main street in Sharon, PA.
Here is another recent gourd with dyed pine needle coil and a bright alcohol dye finish.
Here is a small gourd with pine needle coiling and a kitten.
