Leaving my mark

My newly created Signature Writer maker’s mark from 4clay.com.

Guess what arrived in the mail today? My maker’s mark!

To say that I’m excited is an understatement. I couldn’t wait for it to arrive in the mail, and then I couldn’t wait to stamp it into something. So I pressed it into the Warrior Goddess that I started two weekends ago.

This is my second Signature Writer from 4clay.com (Socwell LLC) but my first-ever professionally designed logo. I love the creativity and simplicity of this mark; its clean lines. I love that together, the three parts of the whole represent a crow but also remind me of the gentle downward brushstrokes of Japanese characters painted with sumi-e.

The proof, created by Julie at 4clay.com.

Applying my mark to my finished work is extremely satisfying. It signifies the end of my journey with a specific work of art, and that mark – once fired – is indelible.
