“I love carving faces into pumpkins more than anything else,” says Ray Villafane, a commercial sculptor and founder of Villafane Studios (@villafanestudios) in Arizona, USA. In bringing his passion for the art and his background as a professional sculptor together, Ray has successfully established pumpkin carving as a full-time business. He chooses pumpkins with thick exteriors in order to carve three-dimensional faces into the surfaces. He also evaluates the right stem, color and shape for each project. Ray then creates the detailed and dramatic features by carefully carving into the pumpkin's skin without breaking through its wall. “While pumpkin carving is largely a subtractive process, not many realize that you can add elements at times,” explains Ray. As he reveals, “super glue works on pumpkins, which can be very useful when adding on things such as horns and ears!” Photo by @villafanestudios
