Pumpkin Carving

I carved my first giant pumpkin 15
years ago. I teach art at a middle
school in Maine and was offered a  
giant pumpkin to carve with the
kids. All I had to do was go get it. I
got my neighbor and my brothers
together and went to get what
turned out to be a 600 lb. pumpkin!
We got it to the school and the
next day I started to carve it. It
took the better part of the day but I
was hooked. I love carving these
things! As you can see, I usually
carve faces. I can be found on
weekends from September to the
end festivals throughout New
England. I also do carvings for
restaurants or private Halloween
displays. I usually get $100 for a
carving! You provide the pumpkin.
I also have several growers that I
can get my pumpkins from and
they deliver!

This whimsical pumpkin was carved at Doles
Orchard, Limington, Maine

the artist chisels
away at the meat of
the pumpkin.

This pumpkin carving is
not finished. It takes
several hours to carve
a pumpkin of this size. The
type of pumpkin also
makes a difference. Some
surfaces are more difficult
to carve then others.
