I made the fist one at art camp.  Another project I was not expecting to be thrilled about that I really got into. 

When i got home from camp my sister liked it so much she wanted to borrow it.  So since she had a birthday coming up I decided to make her a blue one that would go better in her massage room. 


She loves it - and I get to see it at least once a week when I go for my massage. 

There is nothing like having a massage therapist who works next door Smiley  I get to go over in my robe!

They are very elegant; the second one also suggests to me a heron or a person on stilts, something of that nature.

How do you get the bamboo through the gourds?  Are they meant to hold something inside of them?

Thank you for your comments.  They are not really meant to have anything put in them but you could if you wanted to.

Getting the bamboo in has been difficult to figure out.  The first one I  made the first hole and just guessed where it should come out.
The second one I used wood skewers to try and get the holes lined up but it was still a lot of guessing for the second holes. 
My father gave me a long metal skewer that he sharpened.  I am hoping I can poke it through where the second hole should go.
