Meet Pottery Makers Tom and Carole Bognar

The oldest form of pottery is that made from gourds. Tom and Carole Bognar have given a new look to this age old type of pottery by creating many different styles of functional and decorative gourd items. Pitchers, canisters, vases and a variety of baskets and bowls.  In creating their work Tom and Carole Bognar use various types of mediums such as watercolor, carving, wood burning, paint, dyes, pen and ink.   As every gourd is unique, each piece of gourd pottery is one of a kind.
