'Bargain Quality' Bottle 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).
Our 'Bargain Quality' Bottle gourds will be a great addition to your gourd collection if you don't mind a few imperfections. They may have small cracks, scarring, and other shell blemishes which make each gourd unique. They are great for carving and customers often turn them into birdhouses, holiday figurines, lamps, etc. The possibilities are endless, and we've provided you with some art inspiration below!

Gourd art by Madlen Kosiel Tarlton.

We love the creativity that Taylor Duffy Bayliss used to turn this gourd into a mushroom!
Gloria Faith created this very detailed design on a bottle gourd.
Bottle Gourds can be cut and made into 2 different art pieces: the bottom creates a pot and the top of the gourd is turned over and made into a small vase which is shown in the art pieces below.
This is Dianne Springer's desert-inspired gourd pot.

Shown above, Gourd Sizing Board
This is how we measure our gourds:
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.
5" to 6.9" diameter Bottle Gourds
7" to 8.9" diameter Bottle Gourds
9" to 10.9" diameter Bottle Gourds
In the photos above you can see the size ranges available in each of our three boxes which is held by one of our staff members.They are not a representation of the quality and exact shape of the gourds you may receive.
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! 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.
