making stamps

Over the weekend I carved some stamps, to use as examples for class, and it was fun--I love how the flock of little birds came out! I cut up a larger block of e-z cut into small pieces and carved some images from the book Graphic Ornaments by Pepin Press (a fantastic resource with a wide range of images). The deer stamp is mounted with wood glue onto a piece of scrap wood from the woodshop.  I'll definitely be making more of these : ).

  1. These are beautiful! I hope your teaching job is going well? My pottery teaching is going well, not much time left for my own art though! xx
