A Master Pumpkin Sculptor

Since we're only a few days away from Halloween, I thought it would be nice to find some tips on carving your pumpkin.  Now, you might already be a pro when it comes to carving up interesting, scary, creative pumpkins for your porch or yard, but I've never possessed more than just the rudimentary skills required to produce a pretty basic jack-o-lantern style face with a votive candle placed inside.

These videos showcase the work of master pumpkin sculptor Ray Villafane. But, sculpting isn't just a passion for Ray. As you'll hear in the second video, it's more like an obsession.

Enjoy!






So, now that you've had this brief tutorial, maybe you'll be able to create works of art just like Ray's by Halloween! ;~)

  1. I saw him on the Food Network, amazing! I would love to see his pumpkins, I am sure they are more magnificent than the videos show!

  2. I'm so far behind I don't even have a pumpkin yet, and you can't roast the seeds without the pumpkin! I don't have the patience to do this fancy carving, but greatly admire those with such talent ... :)
