Sculpture Gallery

I began sculpting in 2007 and through the years I've created a wide range of creatures. What's special about my sculptures is that most of them are made from gourds. Every sculpture is handmade from a gourd or several assembled together, plus wire, epoxy or air-drying clay, fabric, plastic, wood, and other natural and synthetic materials. Those not made from gourds still maintain the whimsy and detail and I enjoy creating. Each sculpture is one-of-a-kind and no two are ever alike!

Click the images below to see the varieties of sculptures I create. Galleries categorized by type of animal or subject matter. You can also browse my shop for sculptures I have for sale!

I'm currently not open for custom ordered sculptures. See Custom Art for details.

Gourds are a naturally occurring plant related to squash and pumpkins. The plant itself is a long vine that can grow between 20 to 40 feet long depending on the breed. There are hundreds of different breeds of gourd, each growing a unique shaped fruit. The fruit is the gourd. Unlike their cousins though, gourds can't be eaten when mature. They grow a hard wood-like shell that becomes hollow when dried. When a gourd is properly dried and cleaned, the hollow shell won't decay or degrade and it's able to be used in any form of art or craft. Gourds can be tiny, as small as 3 inches tall. Or they can be massive, as big as tables. They can be smooth, lumpy, ridged, round, barbell shaped, and so much more.


Gourd are amazing - and so is what you can do with them.
