Where nature and art meet!

Old Man Gourd at the Fireplace

The Old Man is shown with some of his favorite items; the musket of cedar and his favorite goblet and cup.  These two items were difficult to make in that I had trouble finding the right gourds that would allow me to come up with the various shapes needed.  Between the two pieces there are nineteen cabochons of garnet and jasper in sizes 4mm and 10mm.  Most of the coloring was done with leather dyes.  The old man’s vision was deteriorating so he now has reading glasses when needed.
