Carved Fruit and Vegetable Displays by Students of Video Lessons

It’s always fun for me to see how various customer/students apply the skills that they have learned from my lessons. Even brand new beginning students come up with lovely carvings. And, it’s interesting to see how everyone comes up with their own unique carved fruit and vegetable displays.

Examples of carved fruit and vegetable displays by students of my video lessons are plentiful throughout my website. Here are some of the latest photos that  student/customers have shared.

Students create fruit and vegetable carving displays that are a feast for the eyes.

This artfully arranged fruit platter was created by customer/student Trinh Cao. She learned to carve the watermelon flower in the center and the honeydew lotuses from my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course.

The kiwi’s above have been carved using a v-cutter in the same manner as taught in my free radish bouquet lesson. You can can the free radish bouquet lesson by signing up for the free lesson near the top right hand of this page.

Carved melon display by Tran Pham

Trang Pham created these lovely melon carvings for a competition in which she won 2nd place in the amateur division.

Trang is a student of most of my video lessons. You’ll find video lessons for many of the techniques shown in her photo in my 201 Course which picks up where the 101 Course leaves off.

Dear Nita, Last Tues. 7/29 we drove from Frederick, Maryland to Columbus, Ohio to attend the carving competition as a amateur. This is my first time & I got the second place. I’m so happy & I would like to let You know. We so appreciate what You have done to give us all the information & always encourage to love carving! Once again so thanks for your kindness . Sincerely, Trang Pham

Colorful fruit display created by 101 customer/student Noradel Siago for a home party

Noradel applied many techniques that she learned from the 101 Course. She combined what she learned in several of the 101 Course video lessons to make her fruit and vegetable bouquet in the left foreground. Another fruit bouquet is in the background. The radish lotus lessons were used in the right background and the pepper dip servers are seen at the front center of the table. She added lots of other uncut fruit for color and texture.

Once you learn how to carve roses from watermelons in the 11th lesson of the 101 Course, you’ll be able to carve lovely roses like these from beets and turnips as Smita has done.

In Smita’s photo, you can see a fun and simple way to dress up a vegetable try by adding a beet and leek flowers arrangement in the center.

This watermelon carving by Smita Jaiswal features 2 types of carved roses. Watermelon roses are taught in the 11th lesson of the 101 Course. I like how Smita added the tomato peel roses and the watermelon rind leaves.

Thank you to Jovilyn, Smita, Lino, Abiodun, Noradel and Trinh for sharing their photos with us. I know it’s encouraging, especially for beginners, to see what other create when learning to carve.

      Hi Phuong, My lessons make it easy for you to create pretty vegetable and fruit carving displays yourself. As far as hiring someone, where do you live? If I know a skilled pro in your area I’ll refer them to you.

      By the way, I sent you an email answering this question on Feb 2.
