This Glass Pumpkin Patch Will Feature Fantastic Works Of Art And Delicious Fall Treats

A whimsical fall favorite is heading for Hocking Hills this year.

Jack Pine Studios has been a staple at the Circleville Pumpkin Show for years, but this year, the Glass Pumpkin Patch will be taking place at Jack’s outdoor studio from October 22-25. The glass pumpkin show will give artists, vendors, and guests a place to gather safely.

As part of a community-wide effort to slow the transmission of COVID-19, only 75 people will be admitted to the patch for each two-hour time slot. Tickets are $5 per car and will count toward any purchase made at the glass shop.

Several acres of land, a vibrant indoor gallery, and a demonstration studio mean there is plenty of space to spread out and adhere to physical distancing guidelines.

This year’s ‘Pumpkin of The Year’ is crafted from gleaming black glass with hints of shimmery silver, which represents the silver lining of hope within the darkness of 2020.

“We wanted to create something new and fun and artistic,” said Artist Jack Pine. “Hundreds and hundreds of unique hand-blown glass pumpkins of every color and size will be spread across the field in front of our studio as a way celebrate the changing colors in the great outdoors. It will be a sight to see!”

The artists market will feature ten craftsmen and women from around Ohio and the country. Everything from beautiful birdhouses to stoneware, pottery, metal sculpture, stained glass lanterns and miniature glass pieces will be on display and for sale.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a pumpkiny weekend without pumpkin ice cream, donuts, and rolls. There will also be other food vendors serving up bourbon chicken, Texas tenderloin sandwiches, Amish noodles, funnel cakes, and more.

Jack Pine graduated from Columbus College of Art & Design and perfected his signature glass-blowing techniques in Seattle. Now a resident of southern Ohio, Pine is well-known for his extraordinary hand-blown radiant glass pieces inspired by the beauty of nature’s organic forms.
