I have recently set up my new studio, but new to the world of selling my work. I have a small etsy shop, and have sold about 20 things....Trying to get more organized and professional with my branding, logo, presentation. I am not a potter, just tiles. I am developing a stamp to imprint on the back of my tiles (2-3" whole logo) and would also like to develop a small stamp (1/2- 3/4") for smaller tiles and something that might be visible on the front of some things. Is there a more official name for these little logo stamps? Ceramic marks? My question is this: How do I know if my logo is similar to others ceramic artists' stamps. Is there an archive somewhere, or do I need to go through copy write possess to find out? My proposed stamp is attached, as well as my logo for my shop "Cattail Tile" The stamp just takes the 2 T's ,and dots from the larger logo. It is not terribly unique or creative symbol, but I like it, and I figure it has to be simple to be recognizable so small. I tried a site that visually searches images for anything out there on the web, and it said my image was too simple to search. Ideas? Should I not worry about it and just do it? Does this symbol look familiar to anyone (other than it looking like the Pi symbol with 3 square dots) ?
So, my 'original' idea of a layered bowl goes downhill quickly .... Ceramics Monthly - January 2014 - Page 16 .... someone has already been making layered bowls ... hmmmmmm Last month the image below in a facebook post by Marcia ( from Keramikart ) ... Must be some kind of Vulcan mind meld .... and I appear to be very late to the party. Anyone have a prehistoric example???
