"Two Roads diverge in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

Excerpt: Robert Frost "The Road not Taken"


I cultivate my gourds on the Kansas Plains where I live. As in life and nature each gourd's imperfections individualize their uniqueness.

I use several different techniques when designing the gourds: Pyrography, dyes, inks, stains, enamels, carvings and weaving.

Prairie Gourds is a dedication to my sister, who has endured many hardships with an incurrable disease

To my Mom in appreciation and support, Rebekka and I.
