Monthly Food Challenge
It's a new year, so we're changing things up a little bit. Starting in January, a three month premium membership* will be randomly drawn from the members that participate in the challenge. This also means that we will be extra picky with those that do not follow the rules.
Theme of the month
This month we want you to not create clay food, but create food related items!
Example: plates, cutlery, cake stand, blender, teacups, spatula. Make whatever you want as long as the items are primarily made of clay and that they fit the food context.

Dia de los Muertos Artisan Crafts FeatureAs with the Halloween feature I made, I'm a bit late... but I still think that any time is time for good art!Dia de los Muertos Artisan Crafts Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Some of you already know that I'm mexican and proud, and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a very important tradition for me. While it is also celebrated in other parts of Latin America I am only familiar with the traditions we have here, so I'm really sorry for not being able to represent everyone But feel free to leave me a comment with your own traditions, I would love to read about them
In case anyone is interested some years ago I published a more or less detailed explanation on ofrendas (offerings) complete with photos. Also, I shall warn you that I consider myself a purist, and while I appreciate everyone's efforts to make art inspired by Dia de los Muertos there's some things that simply don't go with the spirit of this date, and I won't include them in this feature... for exa

Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!As a member of the Artisan Craft community here at DeviantART, I looove to browse around the AC galleries and see what other deviants are up to, what things are trending, and look for up and coming artists to feature in the future. But sadly there's one trend I've been noticing that is very, very bad.Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Undercharging your work!
Let's start off with the most important thing. Now I know some cheap buyers love these low prices, but let's be honest cheap buyers-- you're not long term supporters. People who want your work for super cheap are people who will haggle or snag a deal and run. There is nothing wrong with having sales, getting rid of old charms for cheap, or even doing discounts for special occasions but you can't cater to the cheapskates! xD You want people who appreciate handmade items for what they are. And that's a unique, quality piece.
If someone wants to buy all your hard work for just $5, perhaps you could redirect them to Forever21 to get some mass produced jewelry i

Hello dearest members!
The group hasn't had many activities for a while, so we thought, why not do a contest? Everyone likes contests, right?
Without any further yadda-yadda, onto the theme and rules!
Since summer vacation isn't far, I think many of you should have some time to make some cute stuff for this contest! Anything at all, that has to do with summer, is accepted. Remember to be creative and original!
Yeah. We know everyone hates rules.
But without them, we'd have a chaos over here!
Entries must be made from clay and made by you. Other bought props and materials are allowed, but at least most of the work needs to be yours.

Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty EditionToday, March 1st is Self-Harm Awareness Day, but I think it deserves more than a day. I won't say much about it because other people have already published wonderful articles about it, I recommend that you read Nichrysalis's Fears vs Dreams and BeccaJS' Recovery, both contain a lot of wonderful information and share touching experiences.Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty Edition2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What I can tell you is this: self-harm is a problem that is often not recognized. It takes many forms, forms that are not recognized even by the person committing it. Self-harm is always a problem, even if you think you have it under control or that it's not serious, it is. If you are currently committing any form of self-harm, or if you suspect anyone else is, reach out for help. Both articles contain links and resources to guide you, and I'm here to talk :iconheartorangeplz:.

Thank you so much for doing this interview, could you tell us a bit about yourself?
To tell the truth, I always become a little confused when it comes to describing who I actually am (my personality). So, my name is Evelin, I study journalism at Moscow State University. Apart from my commitment to culinary, I have a real passion for foreign languages (I’m learning Japanese and Korean), martial arts and I pleasure in the company of different odd-birds.

PE: Discussion - What is handmade to you?Browsing the artisan crafts gallery there's one word I see popping often: "handmade" or "100% handmade". In a world full of mass produced objects and faceless corporations, crafters strive to return the magic and beauty of handmade objects to the world; some buyers show a great appreciation for handmade products, they will go great lengths to find them and are willing to pay a bit more for something that was made with love instead of sweat.PE: Discussion - What is handmade to you?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
However I also see the word handmade being misused. I'm not talking about mass producers or resellers incorrectly labeling their work as handmade to cheat buyers, which is a serious problem on its own. I'm talking about people buying premades, molds, cabochons, or complete pieces, doing some minimal work to it and later calling it "100% handmade". And accepting full praise - and price $$ - for it.
I've seen this so much that I've begun to doubt my own definition and wonder what other people consider to be handmade, so I'm reaching out to you, my fel

The history of the birthday cakeOrigin of the birthday cakeThe history of the birthday cake2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In most parts of the world a birthday is just not a birthday without a cake. I thought it would be interesting to learn how this tradition started and how it transformed from one culture to the other.
Cake, the word
The word Cake goes back to the 13th century. The word is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse "kaka". It is described as a baked flour confection sweetened with sugar or honey; it is mixed with eggs and often includes milk and fat.
The cake evolution
Cakes were very different from what we know today, in ancient Greece they started off as bread-like, sweetened with honey.
In the middle-ages, Germany used a sweetened bread-dough in the shape of baby Jesus to commemorate his birthday. It was later that the Birthday Cake truly emerged as a celebration item
Totally RandomSoooooo I'm still amazed at my skills right now (maybe I have ninja skills that I'm not aware of hehehe). I just hit a fly on the wall with the fly swatter (while jumping since it was super high up on the wall) and my motion sensor garbage can opened and the fly fell into the garbage can.... O.O. What perfect timing. I was not looking forward to cleaning the dead fly off the floor lol. (I feel like I shouldn't be this excited about the timing of things...since I just killed a bug...@_@)...but yes, that was my random note for the day hehe.Totally Random3 years ago in Personal More Like This
