Where nature and art meet!
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.
