Below are some Example Collections from Georgia

Gourd Girls

It was 1976 when Priscilla Wilson first began experimenting with gourds and we began selling her wares at craft fairs. At that time we weren’t aware that any other gourd artists existed! Since then Priscilla has made decorative containers carved with wildflower designs, planters, rolling toys, calligraphy gourds, pyrography, ornaments, dolls, natural utensils, puzzles, drums, gourdhead masks, and just about anything else one can imagine. Our corporation name is Gourdcraft Originals, Inc.This collection was the 1st that IHP collected as part of our expansion into rural Georgia
