Gourds in action

photo 5The CCA MFA Design Thesis show is open and running! We had a fabulous opening event last Thursday night. For us as a group, it was an opportunity to present the collective expression design thinking we have been wrestling with for two years. For me, it was a chance to have a bunch of strangers play music on the gourds and hear about their experience.

The gourds were received as well as I could have hoped. People just wanted to play with them, explore them. Some of the feedback:

“It is so relaxing, like a rain stick. I like it for stress relief.”
“I want it on my coffee table. Is it for sale?”
“You could make windchimes! A bunch of gourds hanging in the trees, making sounds with the wind.”
“This gourd just put me in my zone.”
“I teach kindergarten. Every child in my class should have one of these. We could build a whole lesson plan around it.”
“Can you teach me how to grow gourds?”
