Painted Gourd Vessel

Created by Nadine Saitlin
Imaginary creatures emerge from one another with repeated line patterns defining the forms. Colored bands provide continuity and flowing movement throughout the piece. The provocative images stand out against a black background. The painted vessel is a natural gourd. The gourd is the canvas for a three-dimensional painting.

It is opened, seeds removed, and washed. The surface is primed, images are rendered with acrylic paint and pen and finished with a protective matte varnish. Although coated inside, the vessel may not be used for liquid. The sturdy and lightweight vessel sits on a metal stand. Can be used to hold bouquets of dried foliage, twigs, and pods or on its own for decorative use only.
