The Perfect Glass Pumpkin.
Last Halloween, while out doing the grocery shopping, I noticed a "Blow Your Own Glass Pumpkin" sidewalk sign. So I insisted that the husband stop at Blowing Sands. This was my first visit to this studio, and I didn't have my special glassblower glasses with me, so I acted just like a regular customer.
Professional glassblower Lon Clark did most of the work for this blow your own event. I picked the colors (orange with a bit of red for the body, and metallic brown stem), and blew the pumpkin's bubble, but Lon did all of the shaping and other work - including the perfectly curly stem.
As always, thanks to the husband for the photography.
