Oil Lamp Gourd

This is one of my very first oil lamps that I made out of a gourd. The design was pyroengraved. For coloring I used acrylics and colored pencil.

The oil goes into a glass tube insert on the top of the gourd. I plan on making a few more of these this summer, of course with different designs. :)
