My gourd luminarias are among my favorite things. They punch patterns in darkness. The holes in the gourd are round, and surprisingly throw Z,N,M-looking patterns on ceilings and walls. The photograph gives you an idea, but the reality is gently spectacular. The dots on the stem are my mark.

This luminaria is an African wartie gourd, not seen real often in this (USA) part of the world. They are tough as rocks. Stout. Bossy. Sometimes they want to sit stem end up, other times they prefer to lay on their sides. The photographs are representative of the African warties I have but probably not the exact wartie you'll receive. I can convo you a photo of your exact wartie. Some are left in their natural color. Some are painted with acrylic just to highlight their texture. Most are about 8.5 inches stem to bottom and 18 inches around. Convo me and let me know if you prefer natural or gorgeous paint.

Each luminaria has a 6-foot electric cord, with an on/off wheel switch; 15-watt bulb. Replacement bulbs can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Lowe's etc.Colored bulbs add dimension to the light show. I have a few white cords should you prefer. Just convo and let me know.

These are great in nurseries and children's bedrooms as night lights. Something interesting to see and talk about and think about as sleep beckons. The darker the space, the better the show.

INCLUDED: Priority domestic mailing/insurance. If your purchase is a gift, let me know at checkout and I'll include at no extra charge, a hand-painted post consumer gift bag with sturdy handles, post consumer tissue and a gourd sheet chockful of gourd lore and trivia.

    My Hickory spoon is beautiful! It will be displayed for awhile before I can use it. I love to just look at the quality work and beautiful wood.

    The gourd turned out great and I have my Buddy's ashes in a nice place that is not depressing (like the urns you can get when your dog is cremated). Jan is very responsive and the images of my dog on the gourd bring back great memories. The whole process of sending images for the gourd made a very depressing loss much more bearable. Highly recommended.

    What a wonderful piece of art! It's stunning and's a box! This piece is one of the finest gourds I have ever seen. Beautiful art and very thick walled! It should last for hundreds of years. I read about the artist; Jan Meng in a book titled; "Beyond the basics gourd art" by David Macfarlane. I have also seen her on T.V. and in galleries. I have collected gourd art for many years now. I must say she is at the top of her field and highly respected for her art! The piece was shipped at lighting speed and arrived in perfect condition! It was a pleasure dealing personally with Jan Meng! She kept me informed on every step of the shipment and it was packed to perfection. I must say I got a great deal on the piece! I have seen her work go for much more in the galleries. I will check etsy for more pieces. My fellow gourd art collecting friends are green with envy that I purchased a Jan Meng piece! I'm thrilled!
