Awesome Carved Canteen Gourd by Bill Colligen!
So named for its resemblance to a water canteen, the Welburn Canteen gourd is well known for its extremely thick shell and beautiful, symmetrical shape. If you do any type of deep carving work on gourds, you’ll love working on the thick-shelled Welburn Canteen gourd! These very symmetrical gourds are prized among gourd artists.

Today's Featured Gourd Art!
This incredible carved canteen gourd was posted by Nancy and Peter Foster! Since the post listed two names, we're not sure who created the gourd, but here is what was written in the post:
"I have finally completed another carved gourd project which I started over a year ago. It is a canteen gourd from Welburn. I changed my plans to include deep carving once I had the gourd cut in two pieces and saw how thick it was. I’ve included progress photos.
The color is Gourdmaster ink dyes and transparent acrylics. I had to use a lot of Formula 49 to “water down” the intense colors since the carved gourd surface is so porous. It also has pyrography details. The finish is a spray acrylic varnish. The inspiration is a Trailing Black-Eyed Susan variety called ‘Spanish Eyes’ which actually has multiple colors of flowers (Thunbergia Alata ‘Spanish Eyes’)."
Thank you, Nancy and Peter, for sharing your artwork with us on Facebook!
