    Lizzet and Rodolfo

    Representing a new generation of gourd artists, Lizzet Hurtado chose to continue her family’s art tradition. When she married Rodolfo, also a gourd artist who learned from his parents, the young couple started their own workshop from home where they now work as a team along with other family members. Rodolfo and Lizzet feel they have complimentary skills and an eye for what new designs are in demand.

    Gourds

    From ornaments or boxes to gallery art to birdhouses, gourds can be used to dress up any home and garden. Interested in the process of creating our gourd art? Check out our owl gourd demo kit.

    We also have videos showing our artists creating our gourd birdies, our owl gourd ornaments, and our Santa Claus gourd ornaments.

    Our blogs about our gourd artists will give your stories to share.

    Story sheets can make each gourd an even better gift.

    Care Instructions

    Keep them dry and they may last as long as those 400 year-old gourds that have been found in the Peruvian dessert. We recommend not keeping gourds in a humid bathroom. And birdhouses will last longest in a dry location, such as beneath an overhang.
