Welcome to Off The Vine Gourds

Gourds have a history of functionality from carrying water to storing grains and primitive medicines, but not often are they thought of as pieces of fine art - unless you are the husband and wife team of Rosie and Dave Claus of Naperville, Illinois. Their collaborated artistic efforts have produced unique three-dimensional works that are now enhancing homes, offices and galleries here and around the world.  Their distinctive and easily recognizable Off The Vine Gourds style continues to be well received and validated. For the past 10 Seasons they have been awarded many times over at various events.  Please enjoy your visit and come back soon to see what is new.
