Play with your Pumkins, Joost Elffers and Saxton Freyman
Text by Johannes van Dam
Pumpkin isn't simply the key ingredient in some of the world's most delicious dishes. The fascinating history and mythology of the pumpkin are enough to inspire, and in the eye of the beholder its beauty is boundless. The creative team of Joost Elffers and Saxton Freymann saw the pumpkin's potential, and they brought to life the many guises of its hidden character for all of us to see.
