Pumpkin and Watermelon Carving 2016

Well Clive certainly has had a good run this year.  With two watermelon carvings and a video created for Fox Entertainment for Tim Burton movie Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children, a full week of carving at Van Dusen Botanical Gardens Glow in the Garden event, photos of his images in UK newspapers The Sun and Metro News and more, an article in the Globe and Mail, interviews on local news stations and radio, etc.  Also a few TV filming projects coming up by the looks of things.  This is definitely his year and he deserves it!  Will tell you more later ….

Van Dusen Glow in the Dark Event

Step into the magical, enchanted forest at Van Dusen’s Glow in the Garden Event from October 24th through to October 31st, 2016 and you just might run across pumpkin carvers Clive Cooper and Bruce Waugh offering some demos (at least on Thursday Oct 27th and Sunday Oct 30th).  Lots of media sharing the love as well.  Hopefully the link below leads to the October 24th news, and if you drag the button at the bottom of the video to 32.50 seconds, you’ll catch a quick clip of Clive in action.



Stay Peculiar with Clive’s newest watermelon carving

Carved out of watermelon for 20th Century Fox Entertainment, is Clive’s newest offering of “The Barron” from Tim Burton Movie, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.  They have produced a cute little video of him in action, which you can view on our Facebook site at the link below.  He also carved a “Hollowgast” creature from the movie for Fox Entertainment.






Angry Birds, the Movie or the Watermelon?

And just in time for the Angry Birds the movie, here is “Big Red” carved in watermelon (gotta’ love the little carrot feet)!  Clive felt it was time to do sculpt one for the kids –  Angry Birds Watermelon!

Alligator Watermelon Carving

Seems there are a few Alligator Watermelon Carvings showing up on the web suddenly, but Clive’s was the first and I still think the best (though there are some good ones, I must admit).  This was featured last year in Ripley’s Eye-Popping Oddities book.  Make sure you share this one, it deserves to go viral! Best Watermelon Carving – ever!

Global BC TV Pumpkin Carving Segment

In case you missed it, here is Clive Cooper’s Pumpkin carving video on Global BC TVs late night show with hosts Sophie Lui and Jay Durant.  Video was disappointingly short, but guess other important news of the day took precedence.

Chris Allard (cameraman) Clive, and hosts Sophie Lui and Jay Durant featured below.
