About the Book
"Fine Art Gourds: Nature's Gift" is a collection of colorful, sculptural gourds created by Marla Helton and Stu Fabe. Each artist brings a unique vision to creating colorful fine art pieces. The artists grow their own gourds and make art that combines a contemporary sophistication with the appearance of work crafted by native peoples working with natural fibers.
Together, Marla Helton and Stu Fabe own Serendipity Gourd Art which is located on their 36-acre farm near Greencastle, Indiana. Marla and Stu grow their hard-shell gourds and then create colorful art pieces that are woven and embellished using natural fibers and materials. Marla and Stu sell their fine art gourds at art shows and galleries. Marla teaches gourd art at retreats and conventions across America.
