mammoth pumpkin carvings

While adults and children alike are preparing their costumes and collecting candy, take a look at these impressive pumpkin carvings from the annual Great Jack o’Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt manor in New York. The Halloween happening features more than 5,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated jack o’ lanterns in a elaborate walk-through experience. The designs, which have been crafted by teams of professional artists, use multiple stacked pumpkins in the creation of a single piece so that they become towering installations scattered throughout the landscape. massive dinosaurs, including a tree-suspended pterodactyl and a brontosaurus in a Jurassic Park area, slithering snakes, giant spiders, a cavernous tunnel, and even a working doomsday grandfather clock made entirely from pumpkin parts are some of this year’s featured highlights. The Great Jack o’Lantern Blaze runs will run for 25 nights through November 11th, 2013. Happy Halloween!

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.

He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.

An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.
