So here it is! This is a rather blurry version of my logo stamp, my 'Whistling Fish' along with an identifier code. Each pot gets a code, most get a stamp. The very few that don't get a stamp (usually because there isn't enough bottom space for the stamp!) have my initials (MjC) signed on the bottom with the code. The code is simply the month made, the year made, then the number of the pot. Every month starts at 01, and goes to ??? so its easy for me to look up the pot and tell what clay it was made from, what glaze or other finish is on it, and any special details about the pot that I think should be recorded. (Like, fired twice because the first time was ugly!)
Clay has always fascinated me, its many colors and textures, the shapes you can create using it, even the feel of it squishing in my hand. Even after years of playing in the mud I find myself exploring new ideas and I hope my work shows this.
