Gourd Leaf by Lisa Gottesman

7.5" W, 10" H, 4.5" D

Artist Statement: I have always thought that leaves partially eaten by insects were beautiful. I worked with a piece of broken off gourd to create what insects do so beautifully in nature.

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.
