Blue Suede Pumpkin


This sultry blue pumpkin glows with an alluring hue, radiating elegance and playfulness with its spin away from a traditional pumpkin color. Its smooth surface has been sandblasted, resulting in a lustrous satin finish that entices the eye and adds a soft texture, like suede. Topped with a frosted, twisting stem, Blue Suede makes a stunning centerpiece, adding a touch of sophistication to any space it graces. It stands well alone and makes a bright, non-traditional grouping with Misty Lagoon and Plum Crazy.

Available in three sizes, and just like real pumpkins, no two are the same. Each one is unique, with slight variations in color and size.

Hand-blown glass varies depending on its lighting and surface placement. Take a look at the photo of the pumpkin pair to see how the pumpkin changes when lit from beneath.
Illuminate your pumpkins with an LED Light Base for a beautiful effect. Mike's mini pumpkins look best with the small light base.

Choice of Sizes:

  • Petite - about 3.5” diameter
  • Small - about 4” diameter
  • Large - about 5” diameter

Measurements do not include the stem. Slight variations in size, design, and color should be expected.

About Lisa Oakley

Lisa Oakley began blowing glass in 1994 when she immediately fell in love with the heat and fluidity of molten glass. She knew that glass was the creative outlet for which she had been searching and went on to build the first hot glass art studio in eastern North Carolina.

Much of Lisa's inspiration comes from the complexity of colors and patterns found in nature. Her work conveys a feeling of organic movement and texture, both visual and tactile.

Her work includes both decorative and functional vases, bowls, platters and ornaments. She is also one of the few American glassblowers making furnace-pulled glass beads, which she then uses to create her own original line of jewelry.

Lisa Oakley's hot glass studio is nestled between a forest and group of buildings housing both glassblowers and potters on the grounds of Cedar Creek Gallery in Creedmoor, North Carolina. Her parents, Sid and Pat Oakley, both potters, started the gallery with their own work in 1968. Over the last fifty-three years it has grown to support more than ten resident artists and over 250 regional and national craftspeople. Lisa splits her time between blowing glass and operating the gallery.
