Cathy's work is just stunning!
This"gourdeous" bowl is a thick walled gourd, decorated with polymer clay leaf accents and some carving around the rim. Its wonderful colors were achieved using multiple layers of several different gourd dyes, with a touch of 18K. gold leaving pen,and gold Rub-n-Buff. The bowl was then finished with several layers of a hardy sealant.This is a beautiful home accent piece for any decor.....fill it with pine cones, or put a small potted plant inside.
- Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.
