The Arboretum Event, LA Gourd Fair 2001 was a resounding success. Several group members were there or were represented. Here is some of the coiling work. I couldn't get to other things that were equally or more (if that's possible!) spectacular. Everyone gave verbal permission for you to use their work.

I felt bad because I missed some really great stuff. I mean awesome! Toni and I were drooling! Kathi's stuff was fabulous too. Wow!

I only wish I had gotten some of the "warped coil" pieces to show you. I think we all learn from this, "human enrichment"! We earned a couple thousand dollars for the zoo's enrichment team efforts because of generous donations from gourd artists. Those pieces ought to be up on the zoo's website soon and I'll post a link when they are.
