Pumpkin Coach


Cinderella changed her ride from a "pumpkin coach" to a "gourd buggy." I created this using two apple gourds and an ornamental gourd. The wheels were cut from the second apple gourd , soaked and flattened using clamps. The top is the ornamental gourd. I made it for a competition but am considering making a few more for the Il Gourd Society State show which will be held at the Chicago Botanical Gardens in September.
