GOING DOTTY, Gourd Vase, SW Lizard Design, Black Stand
A whimsical gourd vessel, “Going Dotty” features a contemporary Southwest design of a lizard in a colorful frame surrounded by hundreds of polka dots. The piece measures 8.5” x 6” and with the stand, comes to 13.5” tall. The black background enhances the ‘dots’ and would be a fantastic addition to any Contemporary or Southwest décor.
After cleaning the outside of the dried gourd, a very time consuming process, the rim was cut with a mini jig saw. Then the inside, which is filled with membranes and seeds, was cleaned with a ball cleaner and drill. Hand sanding finished the interior job and then I sprayed the interior with a paint sealer. The design was then hand drawn and pyroengraved onto the surface. The outside of the gourd was then dyed with ink dyes and acrylic paints. A protective sealer was used to protect the finish of the gourd for years to come.
Going Dotty would look stunning as an accent piece in your home. It would truly fit into any décor where you want to add a whimsical touch. The variety of colors makes it very versatile to add to your décor. Please clean with a soft brush or duster and enjoy for years to come!
