There have been several bogs which I read which talk about signing your work.
Cynthia Guajardo and Linda Star. I think it is important to sign your work so someone can find you if they would like to. I personally like to have the work tied back to the maker.
This is the stamp we have used for at least 24 years.
The stamps simply reads Whynot Pottery- the smaller stamp reads whynot NC.
Any pot made by either Mark or I gets stamped. We try to use this stamp on our work only. We have had throwers in the past and they use a line type other than this stamp.
Because we both are MH-we will on occasion sign our names.
I could be MMHH or MHH or MMH- He could be MEH-
Anyway I was signing some collaborative work with M&M and he looked and said this looks like MOM-
So- if you see a pot signed with Whynot Pottery- Whynot NC it is us.
We do sign our work- if it gets missed I have been known to sign a pot using this- "unknown potter."
