Beautiful gourd art by Marilyn Sunderland

Art comes in different shapes and sizes for many artists. For Utah-based artist and sculptor Marilyn Sunderland, it comes in the form of a gourd.

Taking inspiration from the beautiful scenery in the Utah valley, Sunderland carves detailed forms of animals, flowers, and landscapes onto the shell of gourds. Her unique collection shows us that true artistry can take something ordinary, like a gourd, and turn it into art.

Sunderland says on her website: ‘The gourd is a wonderful product of Nature and has been used by ancient cultures all around the world for bowls, musical instruments, water containers, baskets, dippers, and ornaments of art’.
