Another night working with “dramatic task lighting” in my studio…
only benefit being that the photos have great contrast to show off the stamped textures!!!
So here’s a sneak peek at the “before & after” on another stoneware platter…
and the tools that made the textures & patterns!

Hi, what is the wooden tool in the above photo and how is it used!

HEY ANDREA – It is a small wooden tool that I picked up somewhere along the way… for like $3.00 somewhere!!! I think it was originally labeled as a tool to help with making spouts. I’ve never used it to make spouts… but it does work great to make smooth, rounded indentations! One of my favorite tools!!!
