  10. 10. <ul><li>Artist Statement </li></ul><ul><li>Over the years, I have tried drawing, painting, screen printing </li></ul><ul><li>and etching, but nothing excites me as much as creating art with </li></ul><ul><li>gourds. I affirmed my love of gourd crafting in 2003 and have </li></ul><ul><li>been producing gourd creations ever since. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>My primary goal in creating gourd art is to capture the essence </li></ul><ul><li>of the medium and transform it into elegant works of art. </li></ul><ul><li>Additionally, I am challenged to create works that go beyond </li></ul><ul><li>the traditional confines of what gourd art is. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>I designed figurative pieces and vessels initially. In 2006, I started working on a line </li></ul><ul><li>of distinctive gourd jewelry after being captivated by the book, “1000 Rings: Inspiring </li></ul><ul><li>Adornments for the Hand.” </li></ul><ul><li>Photos of figures and vessels by Bob Hall. Photos of jewelry and the artist by Sala Faruq. </li></ul>Sala Faruq sala FARUQ
