Thai Fruit Carving – Melon Carvings

Much of my carving training has been in the Thai fruit carving style. Thai fruit carving often includes lots of detailed and intricate melon carving. The results are colorful and enchanting to the eyes.

A couple of weeks ago our group brought carvings to celebrate what we have learned. I thought that you might enjoy seeing these photos. They may provide inspiration for you to learn fruit carving. If you are already an experienced carver, maybe you will get some new ideas for patterns to carve.

Take a look at these lovely Thai fruit carvings.

To see the photos in larger sizes, click the photo that you want to see. Then you can click the ‘Next’ and ‘Back’ links to view photos before it and after it. Enjoy!

If you enjoy carving melons, you will love the Thai Pro Flexible Blade knife. You can learn more about it here.

If you want to learn to carve melons in the Thai style, check out my video lessons Carving Watermelons – Roses, Buds and Leaves. A great next step after that is the video lessons in Carving Melon Flowers – Smooth and Jagged Petals. Because you can get online access right away, you can start learning Thai fruit carving today.

    Those carvings are very cool. I’m just a beginner and have done a couple carvings watching your free video’s. Are these hard to do? Cant wait till you release the new course, I’m hooked.

      These are not hard to do once you learn how. I’ll be introducing a set of easy vegetable and fruit carving lessons for beginners that will show you a bunch of basic techniques that will be useful when you then start learning melon carving.

      I am creating a set of video lessons on how to make carvings like these. There are books available but if you are a beginner it is easier to learn by being shown rather than learning from a book. I’ll keep you posted when the lessons are ready.

    Have you ever thinking in Soap Carving too?

    • Nita Gill September 13, 2010 at 8:18 pm #

      Yes. I plan to make the soap carving videos after the melon carving videos because the skills and patterns used with melons will help greatly when learning soap carving.

      I am a fan ofa0bizarrea0art, if you take a look in the offbeat cagreoty you will find such gems as watermelon carving to toothpick sculpting, but this strangea0phenomenona0called pencil carving really takes the cake.

        Pencil carving!? That’s new to me. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll do a bit of research and write a post on that.

    I love carving fuirts and vegetables, and watermelon is my favorite fruit for craving simply because of the space and ease it offers. Loved your videos, thanks so much.
