twisting off of cool Pumpkin carvings!

Scott Cummins, an artist and school teacher, carves pumpkins as a hobby. We decided to share a few examples of his amazing work. This pumpkin is a tribute to the famous Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher’s 1948 lithography,“Drawing Hands.” Scott pays homage to him and calls this piece of pumpkin art “Carving Hands.”

This pumpkin is just another example of how Scott uses the human face as inspiration to carve -- with amazing detail -- an old man’s face.

“Pie-sized pumpkins are great for those times when larger ones are hard to find. These pumpkins usually have a thicker skin in comparison to larger pumpkins and they’re also a lot easier on my back.” - Scott Cummins
