Hironi Matsuyama

Professionally educated, earning an Accounting degree &  Industrial Engineering degree, working as an Industrial Engineer.  I always kept my art close at hand.  At the age of 15, I started selling, paintings and wood carvings.  Six years ago I found gourds.  I still sell paintings and wood carvings, however gourds are my joy! Gourds combine all my creative  abilities.

Over the last 6 years we have sold close to  3500 designer gourds.

Gourd art dates back to 11,000BC.  It is a good feeling  knowing I am part of keeping this ancient art alive.
