Project #1
Please sketch your ideas in your journal. You need to
think about whether your design will be a positive or
                                     negative design.
Referring to your texture rubbings
in your journal please select three
textures that you think you could
re-create in a clay stamp
Examples- the ideas are endless
Examples of coil-built, block
and round stamps
Examples of round clay stamps
Round coil stamps or block
stamps. Be creative!
More examples of stamps, notice
the handle on the block stamp.
Construction: to build a coil round stamp begin
with a coil. Coil must be at least 2” in diameter
                           Roll clay into a thick coil
                           Cut coil into segments
Flatten coil, hollow out the handle
Stamps can be any shape you
chose from triangular to round
