Thinking of how hands are used, the idea of shadow puppets came to mind. I decided to have a shadow image of my hand work with the actual gourd and then with the pear shadow. The abstraction of the hand as it is reformed by the gourd made for some really interesting shapes and shadows.

This piece is an ode to Grammy and her love of gourds and odd shapes come autumn.
