People Gourds
(Please Note: Gourds are a natural product and each one is different. The photo is meant as a general representation and does not show the exact gourds you will receive. Gourd ring stands not included)

These people 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 people gourds with beautiful shells, 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.

The Ornament-Size People Gourd box is great for those looking for a smaller size option of people gourds. They are 2"-2.9" in diameter and 4"-7" tall. You can use these gourds for ornaments, small figurines, petite vases and more!

People gourds make great ornaments as well! Take a look at the ornaments to the right made by Christy Barajas!

See some artwork featuring these gourds below:

These gourds will be a wonderful addition for those looking for a tall, narrow canvas. They will be perfect for vases, figures, and more!

People Gourds have a slight point at the bottom so you will want to sand them on a belt sander so they sit flat, or you can use a Gourd Ring Stand like the gourds shown above.

Tip: To make Gourd Ring Stands, use a People Gourd and cut into rings about 3/4" tall. This will give enough room in the stand for the rounded bottom of your gourd so your gourd stands straight.

Plus the Gourd Ring Stand can be colored with GourdMaster™ Ink Dyes or Transparent Acrylics to match your gourd art!

A hybrid of the chili gourd or banana gourd, these "People Gourds" are so-named because they are so popular for making figurines and sculptures!

Their tall canvas makes them ideal for vertical designs. Shown right, the small vase with hearts was created by Dianne Connelly from a small People Gourd!

Most people gourds have the same thick shells as other Welburn gourds, so you can carve intricate designs in them like Claudia did in the gourd shown below!

Our 12"- 20" tall People Gourds are the popular choice for making gourd crosses.

Shown above, lovely gourd art by Penny Jacobs Marsh! She writes, "Just lately, I began to think how much people NEED encouragement..." Penny gives her finished pieces as gifts to people she feels they will help. (These were inspired by Kristin Popp Johnson, who "has wholeheartedly encouraged others to do their own versions" writes Penny in her post). Thank you Penny and Kristen for sharing!

Joan Groot-Riphenburg made this beautiful cross inspired by a Kristin Popp Johnson class!

These lovely art pieces by Julie Zulauf are the perfect example of using the more slender People Gourds (for the spirit dolls) alongside the wider version.

Gourd art by Claudia Herber. The inspiration behind this piece is Australian Aboriginal art. This gourd was created by dipping the Perfect Dot Stylus in acrylic paint, and applying each dot one at a time on the gourd!
