While watching TV one night, I grabbed a hunk of clay and decided to make a bunch of my own stamps. I pretty much used the ends of pencils, pens and the ends of all my clay tools. Points, squares and round circles. They were then bisque fired.
I didn’t put too much thought or planning into them. They are pretty much doodles -in clay form. Mainly nature motifs, patterns and textures. I guess that’s what comes out when I’m not “thinking”.
I can’t wait to use them. So far I only got to use them yesterday when making this lid for a cream and sugar set. I am already in love with their imperfect organic look.
Below are some more cream and sugar sets getting ready to head to the kiln. The patterns on the ones below are from wooden textile stamps. See how they are a little more structured.
Well, I love new inspiration. I like that the patterns come straight from ME. I think you’ll see these stamps creeping into my future work.
I already want to make more!
