Doolittle Designs Gourds

We've just received some beautiful gourds by Kathy and Mark Doolittle. Unique graphic designs are printed on handmade papers. These are applied on the gourd surface along with a collage of paper using an archival adhesive. A wood-burning tool is used to carve a distinctive mosaic pattern on the surface of the paper design. Handcrafted crests often adorn the gourd top and feature natural plant stems or beaten copper stock; the crests are used to hang an assortment of beads as a finish to a fine art gourd vessel.

Hanging Glass Vases

We've received new work from David Kendall. He also makes hummingbird feeders that we got this past summer. These are his hand blown glass vases that hang. You can hang them on the wall or in a window. They are great for rooting cuttings, a lovely vase for fresh flowers or even dried flowers. The shorter ones come with a tea light and are beautiful with the candle lit.
