The Gourd Place has a museum with all shapes and types of gourds and their uses. They also have pottery they make which is slipcast in forms made from the gourds. The interior of the gourds make a unique texture on the outside of the pots.
Gourds are carved, stained, painted and made into useful items such as bird houses, boxes, toys, musical instruments and more.
Some gourds hollowed out for bird houses.
This owl seems like he's hiding a secret treasure.
Here are some of the gourds made into toys.
The pattern on this gourd reminded of some Native American pottery pieces I've seen.
Some of these gourds are from other countries.
Painted gourds in the shape of apples and pears in a bread bowl looked fairly realistic.
Here's a gourd lamp and some bird houses.
Here is a shot of the exterior view of the gourd gift shop. I love when magnolia trees are left to grow all the way down to the ground. All the leaves and seed pods can be left instead of having to rake them up.
Here are a couple of candle holders slipcast from sections of gourds. We are ninety-nine percent sure we are getting the house we made an offer on. More later. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
