MERLOT LARGE PUMPKIN
|Available in store:||Check availability|
Artist: The Furnace Glassworks (Lakewood, CO)
This beautiful handcrafted glass pumpkin features a tightly curled stem and rich accents on the ribs and shoulders. All of The Furnace's pieces are individually handblown – not formed from a mold.
Individual pieces are striking but they are often grouped together for greater impact! An especially popular combination is a set of 3: Medium Pumpkin, Small Tilt Pumpkin, and Small Gourd. Mix or match color depending on your style or preference.
Each pumpkin is signed and comes with an informational tag about the artist as well as their "Pumpkins with Purpose" program. They donate a portion of the proceeds from their pumpkins to select non-profits working to make the world a better place – that's a Pumpkin with Purpose!

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Corey Silverman formally trained as a glass artist, earning his BFA with a concentration in glass from Alfred University in New York. Corey worked with several glass studios around the country before settling in Denver, CO in 1999. After much experimentation with glass in all its guises--including slumped forms, casting, cold work, and solid sculpting--he found himself always coming back to the blown form. “I love the immediacy found in making a blown vessel. There’s no questioning what it’s going to look like. You know the end result as you’re putting it away in the annealer. It feels great to have that kind of instant gratification in an art form.”
