Succulent Gourds

When I saw these potted succulents , they reminded me a little bit of some patterns on ancient pottery I saw at the Louvre in Paris, so I went to dig up the photos: 

I took pictures of the pottery pieces because I was attracted to the patterns painted on them.  

The artist of these potted succulents, Melanie, grows theses gourds, dries them, burns the designs on the gourds, and finishes them off with succulent arrangements. Each of them are one of a kind and a pleasing combination of pattern, color, and shape. They are beautiful.

Melanie says the gourds do take up room, but are easy to grow, and the greenery is beautiful as the plant grows.

If you are interested in these gourds, as Melanie does sell these, send me an e-mail and I will get more information for you.
