The “Fire & Gold” Collection
The Fire & Gold Collection is here! Gourd lamps and gold leaf bowls in sparkling colors and full shiny regalia! Gourds are just the right gift for Grads, Dads, Summer Solstice and Opening Day at the Beach!
The full collection of gourds is available on the Spirited Touch Etsy shop.
Just added 5 new bowls to the collection. I’m using alcohol inks for an even MORE vibrant look. Check them out!
Some exciting news: My article on “Decorating Gourds” was just published in the May 2016 issue of the Connecticut Horticultural Society Newsletter. It was a real pleasure to work with Barbara Skomorowski, the CHS Director of Communications on this. Originally she had asked me to also write about growing gourds. I had to be honest and say I knew nothing about growing them, especially here in CT, so I’m very happy that she found Michael Russo, the owner of Trout Lily Farm in CT, to share his expertise about that!

Check out the photos above and follow the link to my shop on Etsy. See something you love? (Thinking of Fathers Day or your favorite grad??) If you live locally we can arrange for a pickup. If you’re outside of the Hartford area, please order directly from my online shop here. If there were bowls or lamps here that you had your eye on and you don’t see them anymore, get in touch with me and I’ll try to make one similar to it.
My gourds are also sold at the Holy Family Retreat Center Gift Shop! Gourd Oil Lamps and Bowls lined with variegated gold leaf. Stop by this wonderful gift shop if you’re in the West Hartford / Farmington area, or planning a retreat at Holy Family or Copper Beech Institute. It’s a beautiful place! From their website.
