another 2020 commission titled Curious Bunnies.
This tall body gourd made the perfect shaped vase for this garden rabbit design. The entire gourd is extensively burned with lots of flowers and rabbits on both sides. The pyrography was left natural, with only the addition on blue color on the butterflies.
I wanted to show the inquisitive nature of the rabbits, along with the diversity of a wildflower garden. Included are poppy, black eyed susan, zinnia, iris, and wild strawberry.
Below: detail of the flowers and butterfly.
I am Jenn Avery, gourd artist of 20+ years. I have been a multi-disciplinary artist all my life, and my work has taken many twists and turns and many directions. Gourd pyrography has become my passion, but I love to experiment with all kinds of art and crafts. It gives me joy to pass on my enthusiasm for making art that makes people happy!
