Natural. Playful. Gourdgeous.


Finely Crafted Gourd Art

Gourdgeous by Design is more than the name of my studio, it’s my philosophy for creating beautiful works of art.  Whether it’s finely crafted Gourd Art for your home or your office, I take pride in creating gourdgeous works of art for everyone.






Darlene Saucedo

Award Winning Master Gourd Artist

Having lived in the Southwest United States for over 35 years, I have long enjoyed experimenting with a wide range of desert materials in my work shop.  From gourds to desert clay, I’ve found ways to turn these materials into beautiful and even whimsical canvases and I’ve enjoyed ever part of it. 


For years, my son and husband have seen me create artwork that has made them proud and finally after all of their encouragement and rave reviews from many satisfied customers, I’ve decided to harness this passion and my talent to bring my art to a wider audience.  I hope you enjoy my collections and that you see a little bit of me in every piece. We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
