Gourds, also called calabash, are a sustainable, organic vessel made from the dried shells of squash or pumpkins. In Kenya, the dried gourds were traditionally used as a bowl for food or for storing water. Today, Kenyan artisans incised gourds as a decorative art form featuring intricate, traditional motifs.
