These Halloween gourds are more than just a simple table or door stoop decoration. Instead, these intricately carved lights serve as a sculpture by day and dazzling light show by night. Created by Polish artist Przemek Krawczynski, these carved lamps are made from calabash gourds otherwise known as bottle gourds, their name representing their shape.

They are ingeniously sculpted so that when light shines through each and every crack and hole, it is cast around the room in an array of shapes -- creating a dazzling pattern across the surface beneath. Made up of tiny circles or partially shaved skin, the Halloween gourds cast light that appears to be hand-painted onto the surrounding floors and walls.

Whether you're carving pumpkins or gourds this Hallows' Eve, these designs will be sure to provide you with design inspiration.
