The Big Dance

Painted Gourd Vessel

Created by Nadine Saitlin
The vessel is a continuous abstract painting on a natural gourd. As the name suggests the lines and shapes dance around the form. Harmony and flow are achieved by overlapping and interconnected shapes and colors. As the piece is rotated there are variations of images so the owner can choose the composition to be displayed. 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.
