|Get Going: Going Gourds and More shares an artist passion for gourds.|
A life-long student of the arts, Jessica Di Giacomo has studied and worked in a variety of art mediums, but it was on an unassuming afternoon at a garden club meeting that Jessica found her artistic mode of expression- gourds. "I was hooked," says Di Giacomo, "the lecturer brought in gourds from her garden, and as a project, we were to draw or paint on them."
|A prime example of her work: An original design woodburned onto the gourd with an aqua wash.|
The passion that goes into Going Gourds and More has become a gourd obsession. The artist now belongs to several gourd groups- including a local Gourd Patch group, as well as state and national chapters of the Gourd Society. Di Giacomo puts this passion to work in her business, selling her gourds online at Etsy. You can also find her in person at our very own Midtown Bazaar.
