This gourd is the top half of a huge bottle neck gourd.
I layered a disc of wood to the stem end so it would have
a nice base to sit on. It was unusual because the interior fiber that usually balls up, had dried
to the walls of the gourd creating a mother of pearl finish to the
entire inside of the gourd. The outside art work is the flower and vine of the
White Bindweed, a less friendly member of the Morning Glory family!
