Stamp 2-9-15

I walked out to the studio this evening to work on my stamp for the week and noticed this frost pattern on the front porch.  I took several pictures of it but could not capture the essence I was looking for but did enjoy the spiral pattern.  When I was doing the drawing I wanted one that was slightly larger on one end so that when I stamp into the clay and flip the stamp over it will create a spiral pattern down the piece as I stamp around.  We will find out if it worked when its bisque fired and I can try it out!

I started out looking at frost on the studio porch.   But couldn't quite capture the essence of what I was looking at.

this frost almost looks like fernes or grass waving in the wind.

I used sketch # 14 to create the stamp.
