How important is a "signature/mark" to be on your work?
Do you even have a mark? Are you consistent?


This is an interesting question that I am sure will receive lots of responses. I am looking forward to hearing everyone's opinion.


One of my favorite pieces of pottery, a honey pot, has been in my family for many many years...It was salt fired made in Pennsylvania and has the year and a stamp from what pottery it came from. It has always been special but I remember looking at the stamp on the bottom as a kid and gave it more meaning somehow. I struggle with signing my pots and am really inconsistent with it... but I think it is important and it gives more of a personal touch whether its a stamp or a signature
