Welcome to Gourds By Susan

Creative, artistic, hand-made, one-of-a-kind gourds for all seasons and occasions by Susan Zanella.

While I have a BA in fine arts, I first became interested in gourds in 2005. The first gourd class I took showed that a hard shell gourd has many of the same properties as working with a soft wood. I began learning some of what can be done artistically with gourds. From there, I realized that the variations of creativity that can be done with or on a gourd is only limited to a person’s imagination. 

Some of these gourds are keepers, some are sold, and some are for sale. Any questions, please contact me at gourdsbysusan@lycos.com or susanzanella@hotmail.com.
