If you live in Southern California, the Welburn Gourd Festival is this weekend in Fallbrook, CA. There are some amazing artists displaying their work there, and it's a great place to get gourds for your art projects. I decorated this pot with a gourd attached to some hammered and torched copper. The original inspiration was in a Somerset Studio magazine years ago, but I can't remember the artist. It was originally intended as a necklace, but it ended up changed around and wired onto a pot instead.
