42Graham OttosonGraham was introduced to gourd crafting several years ago, by a fellow midwife. Having dabbled in everything from stained glass to paper maché, photography, gingerbread (serious gingerbread), and more, she is happy to have found one medium that requires so many different skills. She enjoys the simple tasks of cleaning and scraping, staining and waxing, as much as designing and carving. She loves my teeny jigsaw (as big as a bar of soap!), and collection of rasps and drill bits. What a gift, to find amazing raw materials in the garden!

She stopped catching babies a few years back, in part to make more time for art. She is a founding member of the New York State chapter of the American Gourd Society.
