Susan has been doing gourd art for 15 years. It takes an entire season to grow the gourds and then another year to dry them. Once the gourds are dry, Susan plans out the designs and concepts. She carves in details, paints leaves, mosaics using various leather, mixed media, gourd patterns and colors along with leather dyes. Gourd art is a popular and highly decorative mountain craft.
