A Bird Under a Canopy of Trees by Lisa Gottesman
8.5" W, 11" H, 11" D
Artist Statement: I wanted to work with the gourd on it's side instead of it sitting upright on it's natural bottom. I could have left the interior empty but decided to put in a bird.
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.
