This piece was created by Merritt and her Dragon (a mobile glassblowing studio) located in her backyard.
This was a lovely commisioned piece for a friend in Lexington, Ky!
Pumpkins are one of my favorite things to create. This piece has an purple coloring with a green stem. Each pumpkin is placed in an optic mold while really hot to form the curves of a pumpkin. 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.
