This is a pumpkin design I carved for the 2015 Chads Ford Pa. Historical Society's Great Pumpkin Carve.
This years design was a upright dove with out stretched wing, and it's bottom portion becomes an upside down bat with it's wing outstretched . I entitled it Peace And Terror. It represents the two realities most countries around the world are experiencing at this time.
This year I thank God for helping me discover the most effective tools and carving method that has finally made me a expert pumpkin carver competitor.
I have carved three pumpkin this year, and each one get better then the last.
I have been in the past used the hammer and chisel method with wood carving tools. My new tools are clay sculpting tools using the shaving method.
This design took me about 7 hour straight to complete . I did not get to chose or see the pumpkin I would be carving until the day of the competition. The carve is a live event,meaning you can not bring a pre- marked or carved pumpkin to the event.
This year I believe there were about 75 pumpkin artist who participated in the event.
