“My name is Robert and I’m gourd artist.
I make gourd lamps.
Every lamp is fully handcrafted and completely unique.
I use dried shells of the exotic fruit and create the stunning lampshades by drilling perforated patterns in them to let the light out.
This allows the lampshade to display an interesting play of light and shades on the walls.
The work requires a lot of patience and it usually takes one month to finish a lamp.”
