The mission of the Morton Pumpkin Festival is to “Gather & Give Back. It is also to enhance business and build community through the implementation of a unique event. Meet the team and shop with us for over 1000 hand-blown pumpkins made locally, just over the river, from the ladies at J. Draper Glass. We will showcase our best work yet!

We hope you are enjoying shopping on our website. We strive to provide the best image of what we are offering for you. Please note sometimes the colors in our products may look a little different in natural light. Use this color guide to see the exact colors placed in front of a white background.
All of the glass has been hand-blown or sculpted — no machine helps us make our product but our seasoned hands and our love for the art.
Blow a huge bubble & spin it into a platter! Our instructors will guide you to roll into color, heat the glass and use a variety of the glass blowers’ tools. Then, using gravity & centripetal force, spin the glass until it opens into a platter (10-12” wide)
