Scary creatures to light your way!
Many of these glowing carved pumpkins were competitors in the Yankee Candle carving competition (circa 1990). At the time I photographed them simply for our scrap book. Unfortunately I cannot attribute many of the artists. As wood carvers, we've found pumpkin carving to be a quick and satisfying outlet. Flo carved the batula (Dracula with bat mouth) and Rich carved the goofy face with tongue. Flo's most cherished carving, of course is her rabbit guitar.
The pumpkins you find on these pages were either done by Rich & Flo Newman
(aka TagYerit) or sent in by friends & contributors. There could easily
be 10 pages by now, so give yourself plenty of time to explore the vast range
of wonderful creations assembled here! Keep going ...
