Black Gourd 0863
Art Glass Sculpture(ID: A96829)
Created by Hudson Beach Glass
This gourd was hand blown by gathering clear glass and rolling it in fine black glass frit. The stem is made by rolling clear glass in a fine amber frit and applying it to the gourd while molten hot. The gourd is sandblasted the following day to give it a matte finish. Since no molds are used each gourd varies slightly in size.
