I have been thinking about using manhole and utility covers in my ceramics for a very long time, and I finally got around to taking impressions to use as stamps. Then I used paper clay (clay that has paper mixed in for stability) to make the forms. So many stamps...so many possibilities!
|Throw on some olive oil, press in some clay, pull off, wait a while,|
bake at 1000 degrees or something, wah lah.
|I used a lot of mason stains to rub into the designs so they'd really pop.|
|Hand for scale!|
Don't forget! I'M ALL OVER THAT INSTAGRAM THING.
