padGourd Art by John Gibson

A gallery of gourd art by John Gibson

John Gibson creates these gourds using various styles, techniques and all natural materials, blending the past and present with a touch of art. All designs are etched into the gourd and color is obtained using leather dyes. Each gourd is balanced and original designs are incorporated to produce one-of-a-kind work representing classic Native American designs of the plains and southwest areas. With reasonable care, these gourds can last a lifetime.

Although John lives in the southeast, his gourds are well known and proudly displayed in a number of galleries in the southwest, including Santa Fe and Taos.

The gourds range in size from the width of a volleyball to a basketball and are 10 to 14 tall. The colors used are predominantly brown, beige, chocolate, turquoise, and maroon. Each gourd is personally signed and dated by John.
