I am preparing to build up some stock levels in order to display, and hopefully sell, my work through a local shop or gallery in Melbourne.
Something that I have been meaning to get around to is getting a stamp of my "Makers Mark" made. The problem is not getting the stamp made, but rather settling on a design for my mark. I would liken this decision to selecting a tattoo. Selecting the symbol that will forever mark a piece of jewellery as my work is similar in my mind to deciding on an artwork that will permanently adorn your body.
I have come up with a design that started with my signature, I sign my name with a lower case "e". It shrinks down well (it has to be clear at just a couple of millimeters). I like the fluidity and asymmetry of it, as that also reflects the style of my work.
What do you think?
