Crackle Pumpkins

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by Leonoff Art Glass
As if freshly plucked from the vine, these blown glass pumpkins and squash delight the eye with their richly crackled colors and gracefully coiled stems. Leonoff uses an age-old Venetian crackle technique to create a realistic and distinctive design on each pumpkin. In this technique, molten glass is first quenched in water. As the glass cools, the surface forms a skin that, when blown out, separates from the interior color, exposing the complementary hues of the glass and producing the lifelike veining and texture found in real pumpkins. Each of the outer colors is paired with a contrasting interior color and finished with a twirling stem. Just like pumpkins in a patch, each one is unique, with distinctive patterning that will vary.

Shown clockwise from upper left: XL Orange and Green Pumpkin, Large Orange Fade Pumpkin, Green Butternut Squash, Small Orange and Green Pumpkin, White Crookneck Squash, Mini Carnival Orange Pumpkin, Medium Turquoise Pumpkin.
