Blooming Lotus

I’ve wanted to make a flower using parts from gourds, so this was my first real attempt for such a project.  After I had started making the petals, my friend suggested that it resembled a lotus, so I then pursued the lotus idea as best I could.  In addition to the flower and its leaves, I decided to make a vase with 8 faux glass windows that depict an underwater scene of the lotus roots, fish and a few other creatures that live in water.    I used parts from 10 different gourds to complete the project.

    Thanks Lolo,

    I’ve changed the photo of “blooming lotus” and I’ve added a moth that I made recently that you might want to view.
