The art of carving has been a passion of Reg McCormick since retiring in 1994. A simple gourd becomes a work of art through the process of creating an image with delicate strokes and a steady hand. "I try to enhance the natural beauty that I see in each piece. Starting with a simple line or curve, I follow my instincts and I never know where it will lead me."
Creating from the heart! Every gourd is an original design sculptured by hand to perfection.
