En Gourd! Hand-Blown Glass Pumpkins for Your Holiday Table
Impress your guests with these pieces by Pittsburgh’s Vessel Studio.
This Thanksgiving — and heck, Halloween too — skip the pumpkin pie and instead focus on these equally delicious hand-blown glass pumpkins and gourds [$30 to $120] by local artisan Drew Hine of Vessel Studio.
A former instructor at the Pittsburgh Glass Center in Garfield, Hine and his wife, Jeannine, opened their own studio on Pittsburgh’s South Side in 2007. Today, Vessel’s pieces are sold at several local galleries and shops as well as nationally.
While Vessel each year creates a bevy of holiday pieces, including colorful ornaments and smiling glass snowmen, the pumpkins are among its bestsellers.
If you’re interested in creating your own pieces, the studio also hosts glassblowing workshops, as well as private lessons.
