My artwork is a combination of gourds and stained glass. Since I “discovered” gourd art when on a road trip in the southern USA five years ago I have been growing hard shelled gourds here on the farm and experimenting with them as an artform. I had been working with stained glass since I attended an Oxford summer school course some years ago and I was determined to combine the stained glass with gourds despite not being able to find any other gourd artist involving glass in their work. The beauty of the gourds organic shape is that it lends itself to illuminating the stained glass artwork from within resulting in a unique piece that can be exhibited to dramatic effect.
