Gourds have been made into musical instruments, dishware, and utensils. They are simply one of nature’s earliest vehicles for innovation. It only seemed natural for one to find itself into one of these projects. Creating the design for my gourd lamp took some serious three-dimensional conceptualizing. Sketching it all out on the gourd itself was a feat in itself. Finally, thanks to my trusted Dremel and after inhaling way too much gourd dust, I reached a place where I felt good about photographing the piece and sharing it here. I still have a lot more work detailing and finishing up, but that will have to wait until next year.
