The Gourd Maskman

 

Hal Sager is a gourd mask artist and every mask is original.  Jane's gourd art  is completely different and very unique.

At the 2011 Juried Gourd Show held at Casa Grande Arizona Hal's entry "Spirits" Swept the event with 3 Ribbons: First Place, Judges Choice and Best of Masters Division. 

Each mask starts with a gourd and can include carving, burning, jewelry, bead work, horse hair, fur, horns, antlers, bone art, feathers and other items that fit with the mask being created.  Each mask is hand painted or stained and sealed for durability and long life.

The designs are accomplished by using the experience of  Hal's travels in the Northwest and Southwest of the United Sates as well as Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, Spain, Canada,  South America and Africa.

In 2005, 2008 and 2010 Hal's gourd masks brought top dollar at  a benefit auction for the University of Arizona Museum of Art.  

There have been several articles written about Hal and his art.  He was the featured artist in a Canadian gourd art newsletter and web site that has distribution in 14 countries.  Hal has been a commissioned to make two masks for the Agua Caliente - Band of  Cahuilla Indians - in California.  That was a great honor for the artist.

Typically, masks are created for the customer on commission and can be delivered in thirty days. Occasionally existing masks are available and can be viewed by photo or e-mail.  Like other forms of art, the mask should enhance the home and be appreciated by the owner. If  itıs not working, it can be returned within thirty days for a refund or another mask.

Prices range from $200 to $900 for dramatic wall masks.  If these masks were available through retail galleries, prices would be doubled or more.

Hal's main studio is in Marana, Arizona but he spends summers in McCall, Idaho and the Northwest.
