Description

Not just any oil-field worker, this soft-spoken and talented Lumbee man has forsaken his previous occupation to follow his bliss and create vibrant, hotly collected masks of natural gourds and feathers, like this beauty. They are imaginative creations, rather than with any specific meaning.

First, find a gourd in the right shape and size, then slice it (without ruining it),  scrape it, and paint it – all by hand, naturally. Finally, compose an array of colorful, natural feathers and attach them, one by one – by hand, naturally. The result? Brighten your wall; add beautiful variety to an arrangement of paintings, drawings, and other art.

Lusciously textured and hued, but subtly; a richly decorative addition to your home, whether alone, or part of an ensemble.
