Some of The Sculptures From Previous Years:
Pumpkin Artist Pit Ruge
The artist who creates all the pumpkin sculptures for the Jucker Farm is Pit Ruge from Germany. Pit works as a freelance artist and, in addition to his work for Jucker Farm AG, has realized many other artistic projects. Pit begins planning the next Jucker Farm exhibition straight after the current exhibitions have finished. All the carving work then begins in May so that the figures are ready by the end of July. Most importantly the figures need to be created in such a way that they can be broken down into transportable pieces and are still stable enough. And then of course they should also look like something.
