I love being around artistic people and observing the visionary process they use to create these beautiful works of art. I have a friend, Kemper Stone who loves working with hard shelled gourds to create anything from a mask, a bowl to put your fruit in or even musical instruments. I met Kemper when I was volunteering for the Vallejo People’s Garden. I produced a promtional video for a gourd art workshop he had. I couldn’t believe how he could take a gourd and with a few artistic touches, he produced these beautiful works of art. I wanted to share some of his art with you.
