MA Katke - More Than Gourds

MA Katke is one talented lady.
 She began as a metal-smith, basically silver jeweler.
She moved into amazing  and intricate small silver ornate boxes.
When she and her husband, Tom, moved back to
Wisconsin from Hannibal  Missouri,
just a few years ago it was gourd art.
And what a treat for all of us.
Everything she learned from her metal crafting goes into her gourd work.
She has small decorated Holiday ornaments to large decorative gourd globes.
She has fallen in love with Baraboo and is considering moving her studio here.
 Tom is an abstract painter and their work is widely collected.
