Judy & Mud Van Duren

Judy and Mud are a husband-wife team who retired to southwest Utah area who joined their creative juices in creating amazing and unique pieces of gourd art.

Both Judy and Mud’s work with gourds reflects their keen interest in the beauty of the land and the rich cultural history of the American Southwest, the cultural history, myths and legends of the Native American peoples. While they are drawn to earth tones and southwestern patterns, they prefer to allow the natural characteristics of each individual gourd determine its own creative path.
