Artist Update…. Pumpkin sculptor Ray Villafane carves world record pumpkin….

carving the 1815 pound pumpkin was a big challenge for Ray Villafane , but he did it! I was super impressed with these pieces he did over October 22 and October 23 at the New York Botanical Garden. Just tremendous exaggeration and especially love the hand and the zombies coming out of the pumpkin!


Go to my previous post about the artist to see him in action! I am currently carving a pumpkin this way was surprised at how solid the pumpkin is. Way different using a clay ribbon loop rather than a knife to do the pumpkin!

A quick clip of the artist in action with this super large pumpkin!


Happy Halloween!
