I'm in that space at the moment with a mug for an old friend, EXCEPT that t=
e only "repro" on it will be the logo, the rest will be unequivocally MINE.=

This topic drives home again the need to better identify
your work
if you want repeat business from traveling far flung
Anyone can do this and the stamp is frired on an permanent
plus it looks
elegant and allows you to establish a kind of "brand"
that "Joe" or "Mary" scrawled illegibly on the bottom of the
pot never will.

Can anyone help this man reproduce this mug for his wife?
It's not my style
or clay but here is the information.

Best of luck

I am sorry, BEAUTIFUL MUG but not my style with glaze or
Clay. I use a
chocolate brown clay and have rather EARTHY glazes right

I would not be able to reproduce that mug for you. I will
pass on your
email though to a few potters who might be able to help you!

Very neat Michael.

Do you apply the stamp before using the wax or after? I am guessing
that the wax is applied after the stamp.
