Honestly, almost everything about his is perfect.
I love the dark tones on the jack-o-lantern that add a touch of realism, without destroying the cute clay effect.
There are 2 places that I feel could be improved: 1, where the stem connects to the pumpkin 2, The light, or yellow clay inside of the pumpkin.
Basically the only things I can suggest are to make sure the clay is always smooth, even when it should be anne is lumpy... if that makes any sense :)

I also love the photography in general, good photo as well as a good background--and the lollipops are adorable.

Overall, a great job, I hope you had them on display for halloween!

Ps. This might sound like a lame question? I am wondering do you bake all of your creations?

Thank you! I had fun photographing this piece =]. Oh and it's not a lame question :D. There are different kinds of clay, some that doesn't need baking and some that do. I mostly use polymer clay, which means it needs to be baked. Air dry clay doesn't need baking =]

That is very creative! But I do think you should have at least made the top an actual cut out part (boo me and my poor use of words xD) or at least paint it black.

Thanks! And it doesn't glow in the dark, but I should have made it glow in the dark!! I totally forgot about it till another friend of mine also brought it up haha. For the next one, I will definitely make it glow in the dark lol

Oh those are ridiculously cute! Is that translucent clay on the inside?
Would you by any chance be able to make some candy corn? I spent like an hour a few days trying to figure it out to no avail orz Or at least some tips would be great!

P.S. - it isn't translucent clay on the inside, it's actually light yellow with a little bit of tan XD

I would just stack white on orange on yellow, and then cut the edges to form a triangle, then shape it with fingers =]. Blend in the layers as well so you don't see sharp lines ^^. I will make a few though =]

Did you mean like this? [link]
I tried doing the top and making the bottom a bit thicker. Probably not the brightest idea...
Thanks!
