Well, I am celebrating Shavuot, which is known to be one of the oldest holidays in Judaism. On this holiday, harvest of the first grains is being celebrated with songs and dances, remembering the old times when the people went up to Jerusalem, to the Temple, bringing with them gifts and offerings of the first fruits, veggies and flowers. Today, among other customs, we fill nice little baskets with goodies, and decorate both the baskets and the kids that carry them. My little league dived happily into our little basket project while maintaining the opportunity of keeping green.

New Kintsugi* *kintsugi is an old Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with gold New kintsugi is a new way of gluing porcelain based on the old kintsugi technique. The story goes that kintsugi may have originated when in the late 15th century the emperor sent his damaged pottery back to China for repairs. When it returned repaired with metal staples, he ordered his craftsmen to come up with something more aesthetic, kintsugi (gold repair). This art became such a hype that some collectors deliberately started smashing valuable pottery so it could be repaired with the gold seams of kintsugi.

However, the installation still clearly refers to the artisanal process of working in clay. Unfold’s ceramic 3d printer has a great resonance with the way traditional potters handled clay by building a form out of coils of clay. The virtual pottery wheel on the other hand, is a digital tool to ‘turn’ forms in thin air. L’Artisan Electronique is an installation commissioned by Z33 for the exhibition Design by Performance and developed in collaboration with Tim Knapen and the RepRap community.

I like this resource because it is very simple and easy to learn about this seeing it so clear by manupiriz Oct 4

The key to etsy is to read the shop description and check out the related websites for a seller to see if they are really selling handmade or machine reproduced (which means every piece sold will be exactly the same). I look for shops that say "every piece is made by hand and will require time to produce before shipping." While the Etsy policies are supposed to restrict non-handmade items, the policies are only as good as the enforcers so a lot of short run commercially produced creation slips through. There are still a lot of real independent artists on etsy if you take the time to look. Happy shopping! by meganpawlak Oct 21

I totally agree with everyone! I love the site but things that aren't handmade or even vintage do creep in now. The supplies category used to be good but it's getting worse because people are putting things in the wrong place. by rockpaperscissors Dec 9

Etsy is a larger version of folksy. I agree that there's a lot of mass produced stuff creeping in. Although the grey area lies in the distinction 'hand made'. There should be a caveat to eliminate this 'hand assembled' type of product. Although I'm sure we're all aware of the naughty stuff. by tullawulla Sep 29

I think it is always the trend with this type of business . Starts out looking like it's about art and craft , personalized touch . Then becomes a comercialized money making machine . by mirlen101 Sep 29

Yes, resellers, not just supplies. Wedding gowns, designer knockoff handbags, I've even seen electronics being sold there now. The people running it don't allow any controversy, either. Reporting resellers or copyright infringing doesn't do anything and if you try calling attention to those shops you can get banned off the forums, at the very least the threads get shut down super fast. It's really sad. by phrensy Sep 28

I am like you. I picked up pearltrees and then filed it into the "could be good, don't really understand it that much, I will get to it later file." I keep looking around for programs to help me organize things. Then I recently got back into PearlTrees and found it could do a lot of what I wanted. I think it could use some improvements on screen help for novices. easier way to keep pearltrees open all the way to the root etc. But is has a great interface and it makes organizing sites very easy by sbuser Sep 27

It's changed a lot . Grew massively . Tons of resellers pushing products from China now ;-/ Still interesting to browse though. by mirlen101 Sep 27

Heard about this site a while back, but never really went to it much. Recently "rediscovered" it and loving it. Very creative people out there. I just enjoy randomly searching what people have for sale. by peri_cardium Sep 27

oh I hadn't even noticed that! I rather liked the fact that everything was handmade or vintage, though. by mishkabunny Jul 3

Be sure to browse around. Etsy is now allowing resellers and not just handmade/vintage. :( by phrensy Jun 19

Spontaneous shoppers love fun stuffs that catch their eyes. This is a website where you can buy and sell handmade stuff. it's very interesting. by grace0408 Dec 21

Etsy is a very nicely implemented, well designed social marketplace for handmade items. A more innovative eBay. The selection of items and active community contribute well to the overall shopping experience. Etsy is the place to look for unique handmade art, jewelery and much more. by marcelmaassen Mar 13
