2,000 glass pumpkins part of display in Edmonds

These are not smashing pumpkins.

These gourds are hand blown from glass.

About 2,000 glass pumpkins will be on the 2013 Northwest Glass Pumpkin Patch tour by the Tacoma Glassblowing Studio. The pumpkin patch will make the rounds to sites near the Puget Sound.

Very few break during the annual roadshow, glassblowing studio owner Jeannine Sigafoos said.

“Lots of lots of bubble wrap,” Sigafoos said.

Most pumpkins range from 1 to 8 inches in size. Prices start at $35.
