Hand Painted Gourds

Japanese Bird Gourd #1


Bird Series

Japanese Bird Gourd #2


These beautiful hand painted gourds were grown on the Navajo Reservation. I picked these gourds because of their unique shapes. Each gourd "spoke" to me as to what design it should have. The designs are influenced by my experiences living and working in the Navajo culture and by my many travels to the ancient ruins of the Southwest.

Each hand painted gourd is highly detailed and preserved to ensure their everlasting beauty.

Feel free to email me at rakalmat@msn.com for prices and listings of recent work.
