Welcome to the online MIT Great Glass Pumpkin Patch!
When you buy a glass pumpkin from the MIT Glass Lab, you are helping to support a unique program at MIT that is very much a part of the “mind and hand” tradition central to MIT’s ethos.
Nearly 100% of the annual operating budget for the Glass Lab comes from revenue from the MIT Great Glass Pumpkin Patch.
Our community of around 20 instructors consists of a diverse group of current students, alumni, and professional glass artists ranging in experience from 3 months to 30 years. When making pumpkins, we work in ever-changing teams of 2-6 people. A result of this great diversity is that every pumpkin we make is different – no two are exactly alike!
Thanks for your support of this special resource.
