Halloween may be over, but pumpkin season doesn’t have to be. There are plenty of pumpkin seeds to be roasted and – if you’re one Wisconsin woman, always plenty of pumpkins to be carved. Lake Effect contributor Gianofer Fields brings us the story of the anonymous "Mad Pumpkin Carver" in our series called “It’s a Material World.”

The series is funded by the Chipstone Foundation, a decorative arts foundation whose mission is preserving and interpreting their collection, as well as stimulating research and education in the decorative arts.
