The Birthday Gift

This design is called The Birthday Gift. Let me explain to you why.

Summer 2016. It was the birthday of a very close and longtime friend of mine. It is my habit to make something special and give as gifts rather than go buy something.

There was a large and tall calabash which have been sitting at the corner which I wasn't sure what to make with her.

I know my friend had a particular interest in blue and the evil eye. So I took my pencil and started to make circles and designed this gourd lamp. It has never been my intention to include this design in my collection until today. Now, why? Because since the day the present made and its quality inspection has been shared on Pinterest, no other pins of mine has been re-pinned like this design. Far more than my most pinned design.

 

Unfortunately I don't have purposely taken photos of this design. Just photos from the quality inspection as no other replica has been made so far.
