Temperature's Risin'
How long have you been doing your fabulous crafts?

I have always had a very creative side.  My mom said I was the most difficult kid to keep busy because I wasn’t interested in any of the normal “girl stuff”.  She would go to the library to research art projects for me to work on, and took me to the grocery store to pick out my favorite shapes of pasta.  I would paint the pasta and create pictures or sculptures with it.  I loved weaving paper and got very interested in origami for a while.  My father is an amazing craftsman, but he came from a place and time where the work he did was for function and to make a living.  He has never considered himself an artist, but the man can make anything.  He built custom houses when I was a baby, and I spent hours with him in the garage tinkering with his tools, and making things.  My grandmother also taught me needlepoint and embr

AC Month Interview with: lisaluera!
What is this?
Throughout the month of January, Artisan Crafts Month, I will be posting interviews with artisans who have made a difference on dA either through their own artisan crafts, or the effort they put into the community (and it's usually a combination of the two!)
This is the interview with lisaluera, Pottery mistress.
First, a little about lisaluera.
It is interesting to find out about Lisa that in the artisan crafts world she actually started out doing Pumpkin Carvings (you can see her wonderful work here on dA: pumpkinsbylisa!), and didn't get into pottery until about a year and a half ago when she randomly took a class on it.  Lisa says that she was instantly hooked.  She says that the first time she felt the clay run through her fingers, she knew it was something that she was going to be doing for the rest of her life.  On

I have 2 accounts on DA.  This is my "fun" one for my occasional pumpkin carving hobby.  It typically doesn't get much traffic except around Halloween, so I tend to neglect it a little more than my other account.  However, I noticed my other account had higher pageviews than normal yesterday and was curious as to what was going on.  I decided to look at the daily deviations and about fell out of my chair when I realized that Carlotta4th :iconcarlotta4th: suggested Bearded Green Man Bearded Green Man by pumpkinsbylisa for a daily deviation that was featured by the awesome Artisan Crafts Gallery Director Myana :iconmyana:  Everyone likes my carvings when it is in October, but they typically get forgotten for the rest of the year so this was such a pleasant surprise!  I was blown away to login and find over 1000 messages waiting for me and my total pageviews TRIPLED!  Wow!  That's all I can say.

Thank you so much to everyone that has commented and faved.  I really appreciate it.  I will do my best to get back to everyone that was so nice to take the time to stop by.

I would also like to take the time to tell everyone to stop by and check out Carlotta4th's gallery.  She has some amazing drawings.  I was particularly impressed with one of her beautiful drawings of an eye.   An Eye by Carlotta4th

In addition to gallery director, Myana does some kick ass wood working!  Check her out too!  She deserves some love for all the hard work she does on DA and in her wood shop.

Thanks again Carlotta4th and Myana!

Your pumpkin carving skills are unreal! I never even knew people could do this kind of stuff (or actually did). Thank you for sharing such wonderful pumpkins! Do you think you could also take pictures of them when they are not lit? or would that break the magic?
