Pear & Kettle Gourds

Please Note: The photos are meant as a general representation of the shapes of gourds you can expect to receive. Because gourds are a natural product, they are not guaranteed to sit flat and may have a round bottom (this is especially common in Tall-Body gourds).

These Pear & Kettle gourds are some of the nicest gourds we have available! Because of this, we have limited quantities available, and they sell out fast, so grab them while you can! If you're looking for pear and kettle gourds with beautiful shells with no cracks and minimal shell blemishes, then these are the ones for you. Our gourds are known for their lovely, natural markings. These are NOT considered shell blemishes but are part of the natural beauty of the gourd.

For some inspiration, we've provided art work shared with us from our customers below:

Grace Anne Swanson is known for using our Metallic Inks which you can see here in this gourd basket that is made out of a kettle gourd.

We love this floral, carved pear gourd that Janet Bratcher shared with us!

This detailed, lidded kettle gourd was made by Randall Eckle.

Finally! A gourd box option with a mix of pear-style gourds! This new “Pear and Kettle” gourd box has both taller pear shaped gourds and shorter ‘kettle shaped’ gourds (named for the classic squatty stove-top water kettles many people used to have).

The base, or main body, of these beautiful gourds is taller than most canteen gourds and wider than a Tall-Body Gourd, great for when you want round gourds with some height.

Gourd sizing chart

Shown above, Gourd Sizing Board

 

*Please note: Gourds will be bigger than the size shown on the sizing board because there is a range from one size hole to the next. For example, a gourd that sits on the 9-inch ring and passes through the 10-inch ring on our sizing board is priced as a 9-inch gourd, even though it could be as big as 9.9 inches. Watch our Gourds 101 video to see how we price our gourds. Gourds are sized by their diameter, which is the widest point of the gourd straight across.

Gourds measured in diameter

Sue Bailey McQuiddy turned her gourd into a little cottage, complete with furniture made out of gourd parts.

This is an adorable holiday gourd made by Diane Wilson Kemp.

Carolann Chambliss created a 'Whimsical Botanical' art piece out of a kettle gourd.

Jenny Gagnon loves to turn pear and kettle gourds into lidded, metallic masterpieces. You can see two examples of her beautiful art in the images above.

Please keep in mind that no gourd will be perfect and variation is to be expected.

Because gourds are a natural product, these may have a slightly asymmetrical shape, or shell blemishes in an inconspicuous area, but they are still fabulous gourds! As always, Pre-Boxed gourds have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied, simply return the entire box for a full refund within 30 days!*

*For Pre-Boxed gourds, refunds are given on the entire box, not individual gourds. Sorry, we cannot refund individual gourds from a Pre-boxed group because the price reduction offered on these boxes (as compared to Custom Order gourds) is based on the group of gourds as a whole.

Please note: Photos are meant to be a general representation of the gourds you will be receiving.
