All of the
gourds are created by Karen Willingham who resides
in Lafayette, Louisiana. Karen's gourds are carefully
cared for, from the time of sprouting to the
finish designs. Her inspirations come from all
around her and each one is a unique piece of art.
One thing that makes each one unique is the way
nature sculpts them in to their individual forms.
Sometimes designs will be duplicated, but because
of the shapes, no two are alike.
A gourd is a fruit that is related
to squash and pumpkins. Nature shapes them into a
piece of art. They have been crafted for thousands
of years into bowls, drinking utensils and even some
varieties were used for food. Today they are used
to craft many of the same things but also used for
many other applications and designs.
Karen has her Gourd Art at Deux Bayous Gallery Collective 1510 Bayou Courtableau Hwy,
Arnaudville, Louisiana, 70512. They are open Saturday and Sunday 11-4.
