2 Gourd Birds by Lisa Gottesman
Lge bird: 10"W. 15.75" H, 6.25" D, Sml Bird: 9.5" W, 13.5" H, 15" D
Artist Statement: The shape of the gourd helps to determine what they are made into. These Bottle Neck gourds were perfect as birds and the gourd stems were perfect to keep as the beaks.
Bio: I am a retired Art Director and designer for chocolate foodservice companies: Chocolates a la Carte (USA) and Dobla (Netherlands). I have worked with many famous Pastry Chefs from the US and Europe.
Since my retirement I have been exploring different mediums in 2- and 3-dimensional art. I started out with paintings and then moved on to 3 dimensional projects.
I began exploring working with gourds during the 2 years of Covid lockdown. It was definitely a challenge learning how to use power tools to manipulate and cut gourds. I began by purchasing single dried gourds on Ebay. At the end of the Covid lockdown I had a house full of gourd sculpture experiments which I gave away to friends and family.
I'm looking forward to exploring many other mediums now that I have the time and freedom to do so in my retirement.
