If faces can tell a story then the characters in Lisa Krause’s collection of gourd people have plenty to tell. Their detailed expressions are sure to amuse and delight. These brightly decorated ‘individuals’ are crafted from simple gourds, then painted and embellished to create unique personalities. Each piece is like no other and can be displayed effectively alone or as part of a grouping. A resident of Evening Shade, Lisa’s career has spanned the retail and service industries and now focuses on arts and crafts.
