I had a small cute gourd and a half gourd, given to me by some gourd art enthusiasts. So I made a mini-condo. You can see how I made it on my blog (www.AndreaEdmundson.ART/blog). It's made with repurposed glass, millefiori, small tiles, and repurposed jewelry. Oh, and the lizard! He's a renter - can be evicted. Part of it is grouted and part is embedded in thinset. These small curvy substrates are a challenge.
