I am a little biased towards cats, but I have to admit, I adore dogs too! My gourd sculpted cats and dogs are created with a complex assembly
of whole and cut gourds. With each gourd already being its own shape and size, I can never duplicate a sculpture. Most of the sculptures here
were custom orders and are not available. You can order a custom made gourd animal by

Gourd Cats & Dogs
Gourd Cats
Gourd cats, dogs, and other animals (raccoons, bears, mice, and rabbits) are all made of multiple
gourds assembled together. Miniatures are one and a half gourds, while mediums sized sculptures
are 3-7 gourds. Paperclay and epoxy based clays are used to fill in their form and details.

assembled and air-
drying clay has been
used to fill her shape.
These gourd cats were busy! The larger cats are made of many gourds, while the miniature cats
(3-4 inches tall) are made of one and a half mini doll gourds. All are hand-made, no molds!
