So many impressive techniques are showcased in this truely spectacular piece. Hand carved waves flow through stained colors and encircle a stone of spider web agate.
Beverly has mastered many art forms through the years, always creating, always learning. Her knowledge and skill for the perfection of the fine has now transffered over into her latest love: pine needle basket weaving and gourd pyrography.
Each gourd takes its personality from the gourd itself. Beverly says that she lets the shape speak to her and the design flows from that. Each piece is completely unique and original. On her polished pieces, these gourds undergo five stages of sanding to obtain their luster, each stage utilizing a finer and finer grit sandpaper. All the color in the gourd comes from stains, not paint, handpainted on by Beverly with fine-tipped paintbrushes. Stones are hand cut and polished by Beverly's husband to perfection as the crown jewel in the piece.
