Carving Hands

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.”

Hidden Predator

“For this one, I visualized a snake stowed away inside a pumpkin.” - Scott Cummins

Carving Technique

“Sometimes I enjoy completely carving out a pumpkin so it can be lit from inside. It’s much easier to hollow the pumpkin out before carving the outside.” - Scott Cummins

Master of Thin Skin

This pumpkin’s skin wasn’t thick enough, so Scott came up with a creative solution when the nose fell off this funny character.

Sea Turtle

“My favorite carvings are usually of a face, but I’m always surprised at how many people have expressed that this little sea turtle is their favorite out of all my carvings.” - Scott Cummins

Retro Lego

Scott has fun with his pumpkin-carving hobby and creates the face of a Lego man on the side of a small pumpkin.

Pie-Sized Pumpkin

“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

Star Wars Droids: C-3PO and R2D2

“I always try to find a little time during pumpkin season to carve some pop culture subject matter that appeals to me.” - Scott Cummins
