Pre-Boxed Clean Large People Gourds


People Gourds are back in stock and are now available in LARGER sizes!

Pictured here, Kelsey Nelson holds the NEW Large People Gourds, showing the comparison between the 3 inch diameter and the 4 inch diameter gourds.

There are 2 different options to choose from:

Box of 10, 3 inch diameter people gourds, 16-24 inches tall!
Box of 10, 4 inch diameter people gourds, 17-24 inches tall!

Diameter refers to width of the gourd straight across at the widest points.

*Please note: Gourds will be bigger than the indicated range because of how we price them. For example, a gourd that passes THROUGH the 7-inch ring on our sizing board is priced as a 6-inch gourd, even though it could be as big as 6.9 inches. Watch our Gourds 101 video to see how we price our gourds.

Shown above are 2 examples of stunning sculptures and Kachina dolls by Pamala Redhawk. So much amazing detail is found in both of these gorgeous art pieces!

She used a large People Gourd for the body of the sculptures.

She then surrounded the scultpures with tons of various sized Jewelry gourds and cut them into adorable, multi-colored pots! Each pot is it's own little art piece!

Gourds are sized by their diameter, which is the widest point of the gourd straight across.

Most of the "Pre-Boxed Clean Gourds" are sorted by the following sizes:

Shown above, Gourd Sizing Board

Large Size: Approx. 9"-10.9" in Diameter*
Medium Size: Approx. 7"-8.9" in Diameter*
Small Size: Approx. 5"-6.9" in Diameter*
Mixed Sizes: Approx. 5"-10.9" in Diameter*

Please see the size references in the photos below!

*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.
