Independent Projects: 

Available year round by appointment


Independent projects present a unique opportunity to design and execute an advanced gourd project in consultation with an experienced artist.  I will work with you, one on one, over a minimum of 8 studio hours  (arranged at our mutual convenience) to make a beautiful piece of art work.    

Independent Project Fees are dependent upon the scope of your project, your level of skill and experience, and the materials and overall time required for completion of your piece.  Several previously completed Independent Projects involving one large gourd & costing approximately$200 are posted on the Student Experiences page.     

General Information


Signore is an Arizona Gourd Society Master Gourd Artist.

One of her most popular techniques utilizes a special hi-gloss

finish she calls "Mosaic Glaze". ( see bowl above) These pieces

are silky to touch and brilliantly colored in a mosaic like

multimedia finish that often evokes one of the  southwest's

most beloved scenes:  a shimmering desert sunset. 


Other classes with Signore offer, instruction in pyrography,

precious metal leafing and lanterns, totems and mask making. 

Each Class typically meets over three days for two hours each

day at Signore's studio in Green Valley, AZ.  These class 

groups are limited to 6 people and designed to provide

maximum personal attention. 


The goal of every class is to have fun, create something

original and beautiful, and to become familiar with new skills

that can be used in gourding or other art work.  


Independent Projects


Signore offers Individual classes throughout the year by

appointment. These independent classes are ideal for

developing gourders who seek  advanced instruction

and assistance from an experienced gourd artist in creating

complicated original work.
