This piece was created by Merritt and her Dragon (a mobile glassblowing studio) located in her backyard. Pumpkins are one of my favorite things to create. This piece has an transparent orange with a green stem. Each pumpkin is placed in an optic mold while really hot to form the curves of a pumpkin. Then it is blown out to the desired size, the bottom is flattened and hit off of the blowpipe. Then a hot gather of glass is placed on the top, stretched and wrapped around a metal rod to give a curly stem.
Dimensions are 2.75"x3"
