Giant Pumpkin Carvings

What is more amazing that the size of the giant pumpkins grown in Ohio? The giant pumpkin carvings that were carved from them!

At an event named “Operation Pumpkin” in Hamilton Ohio, pro carvers Dean Murray, Greg Butauski, William Wilson and Jon Michaels sculpted some impressive giant pumpkin carvings. All together there were 3997 pounds of giant pumpkins made into imaginative giant pumpkin carvings. Take a look.

These guys are multi-talented. Most, if not all of them, are also skilled professional ice carvers. Isn’t it amazing what have done?

Maybe these carving ideas will give you some inspiration to make your own 3D style pumpkin carvings this year, although on a smaller scale than these giant pumpkin carvings. If you want some instruction on how to make 3 Dimensional pumpkin carvings, you have couple of choices. I know it’s last minute, but if you are in or near Holland tomorrow, Oct 10th, you can join and attend Dean Murray’s pumpkin carving workshop. Contact Greg Butauski at [email protected] for more details.

You can also learn to carve 3D Pumpkins from master carver Ray Villafane. You can learn more about Ray Villafanes 3D pumpkin carving tutorials that are currently available in our online shop.
