    A beautiful design on this pumpkin. It takes the pumpkin out of the ordinary!
    I would really like to know the techniques that were used to create this masterpiece. How deep did the carver have to cut, and what tools were used? Was the design taken from an illustration or drawn freehand?

    I think the deepest cut was about 2cm – it helped to have a thick-skinned cultivar for this technique. The only tool was a sharp, small knife that could cleanly cut through the flesh of the pumpkin.
    The design was freehand, and mostly done within the last ten minutes of the hour allotted for pumpkin carving, after I figured out what the shapes I initially started with were going to be…

    I just discovered your site, so I missed this holiday pumpkin line-up, but it’s very cool.
