"Ravens on a Wire" Gourd Bowl, Braided Leather Rim, Goose Feathers
“Ravens on a Wire” is an interesting gourd bowl that comes complete with a black metallic plate stand. The piece measures 6” x 6.5.” This piece would be suitable for any décor and would provide an interesting accent to any room. Raven is an interesting creature in Native American lore, often symbolizing change or transformation. He is the bringer of light out of darkness, and aids in healing and clarifying visions.
After cleaning the outside of the dried gourd, a very time consuming process, the rim was cut with a mini jig saw. Then the inside, which is filled with membranes and seeds, was cleaned with a ball cleaner and drill. Hand sanding finished the interior job and then I sprayed the interior with a paint sealer. The design was hand drawn and pyroengraved onto the surface. The gourd was then dyed with ink dyes which are heat set. The ravens were enhanced with a special gloss dimensional finish. The rim of the piece is a flat braid of black leather, tied off, and embellished with black Goose Coquille feathers.
Ravens on a Wire is an interesting piece that will accent any décor and may enhance your personal quest as a reminder of clarity in a brighter future. Clean gently with a soft brush, or duster.
