About The Process ~ Jaz’s Story

“I am completely self-taught and continue my education by every means possible. Being easily bored I am both struck by the variety of works that can be done on, in, and with gourds, but I am equally interested in the history of gourds and their various functions. It has become my passion and a full-time job that I love. Each gourd is an experiment, and I am usually delighted with the outcome. I hope you enjoy them too!”
