Where nature and art meet!
This is another flower and vase I made for my long-time friend Dokey Rowhani in California. The rose was made of five different gourds. The leaves are cutouts from the side of a larger gourd; they are dyed green and have simulated raindrops on them. The vase was made from a lump-in-the-neck gourd. The base is made of Macassar ebony from Southeast Asia.
