I have been using metal stamps for years on my pottery. They are from an old Tap and Die factory here in Greenfield Ma. I love the fact then when you use a stamp, another whole pattern appears other than the stamp itself. With this particular cross like stamp the negative space becomes a clover leaf image. It starts to play with your eyes creating an optical illusion. These are tiles I make with this pattern. I’ve always loved them and wanted to more with this pattern on a larger surface.
I had mentioned in an earlier post that January was the time I catch up on making new urn forms. Here is one with the clover leaf pattern, drying by my sunny window.
