Little Elm, TX USAWidth:
Fabric, Pellon Peltex 72; free motion quilting, photo transfer.Artist's Statement:
This is a mailable fabric postcard. It is a photograph of an ipu (dried gourd), which was transferred to fabric. In Polynesian entertainment, the dried gourd is used as a percussion instrument when the musician or dancer taps the side or bottom with rhythmic beats. In ancient Hawaii, the dried gourd also had a practical use as containers. Today it has many additional uses. The gourd is used to create jewelry, sculpture and other art.
To my daughter, Ku'ulei.
