Gourd with Teneriffe Weaving

I finished up the gourd last night, in the wee hours of the morning. The weaving is kind of addicting--once I get started, I don't want to stop!

The finished gourd is 9 1/4" x 6 1/4". It has been decorated with leather dye, waxed linen, wooden beads, and a wooden button. The weaving is done in a free-form teneriffe pattern. The colors and techniques give this piece a SouthWest US flair, but with a modern feel. Here's some pictures:

This is Gourd #13, and will be signed and numbered. It will be up in the Etsy shop before too long.
