This is a handmade, natural vase created with a real dried gourd. The artwork features a cat in a classic cat stretching pose, with a mandala-style design. The artwork is drawn onto the gourd shell using wood-burning techniques. This is a unique and wonderful gift for any cat lover! It's really amazing that this decorative vase is actually an upcycled vegetable! Gourd vases look lovely as a rustic table centerpiece. You can add some dried or faux flowers for fun!
-To make this vase, I cut the tops off of real dried gourds and clean out the middle just as you would a fresh fall pumpkin.
-I shape the top edge with carving tools and add texture to the inside of the gourd using a stippled technique.
-Translucent stains and waxes enhance and help to reveal the natural beauty of the gourd shell.
-This gourd vase is 12 inches tall and 5 inches wide
-The flowers are not included.
-Keep in mind the gourds are dried, and therefore very lightweight. If the flowers are a little top-heavy, you can just place a rock or random
household item in the bottom for some extra weight and stability.
