|"Building #131", Detail|
|Clay Stamps and Stencil|
Now for a bit about process. Along with the natural elements I used to impart texture on the slabs I used clay stamps. Some of these I made from my military map and chart kit. Others are based on military equipment and personnel. I also made a few barrel stamps that are suggestive of vehicle racks. Some of the symbols I used represent artillery, rations, direction, landing zones and ammunition.
|This platter cracked which I expected since I really beat it up when I was pressing it into tress and the stone wall. I am going to put some epoxy on the back of the crack to reinforce it and to try to prevent any further cracking.|
