Dream Catcher Gourd

$ 110.00

Dreams play an important role in Ojibwa culture and Sue Zimmerman drew upon the significance of dream them when creating this piece. She has included a small stone inside the gourd to act as a tonal addition to its already interesting arrangement. The gourd also features two long stylized feathers running along each side of the dream catcher.

  • Dimensions: 7" diameter x 8" height, adjustable 12" long leather hanger
  • Materials: natural gourd, small stone (inside gourd), red willow strips, paint / pencil (underneath), glass / metal beads, commercial leather, artificial sinew

    Sue Zimmerman is an enrolled member of the Grand Portage band of Ojibwe and currently lives in Sandstone, MN. Her technique used to create these fine gourd art pieces is quite remarkable. She first dries and then cuts her own home gown gourds. Then, she hand draws and paints each gourd with its own unique "one of a kind" design. Sue does not make very many gourds each year, so we are very lucky to be able to show and share her wonderful creations.
