Arizona-based Villafane Studios elevates pumpkin art by carving intricate designs into the fruit. From clown pumpkins to the Cheshire cat, Villafane created some unbelievable pumpkin art this year. Ray Villafane, founder of the sculpting studio, has won titles on the Food Network for his pumpkin sculptures. He has also been invited all over the world, including to the White House, to share his art.

These pumpkins truly redefine food art and pave the way for creativity this season. Take inspiration from the carvings and try to create something of your own that will impress everyone on your block. Throw a pumpkin carving party to get your family and friends involved. Host a contest to see whose pumpkin fits in the best with Villafane Studios’ creations. Though your pumpkins may not be on the studio’s level, if you start thinking of pumpkin carving as an art you may surprise yourself.
