A co-worker does pottery in her spare time, and I think she is quite good at it. She wants to put her logo/signature on her work, so she wrote it on a piece of paper for me. I scanned it and vectorized it in Inkscape. A bit of work in Blender and help from Shapeways made it real.

index.php?t=getfile&id=7701&private=0

The signature itself is about 10 mm high, the whole thing is 27 mm long. I realized later that the shaft ought to have a better connection to the stamp head, but I think it will keep together. On the other hand, it cost almost nothing (stainless steel, less than $6.00), so I could easily make her another one, and hopefully one for me too.

Very interesting concept.. I know that there are (were) people who collected cattle brands (and branding irons) from the large ranches back in the 'cowboy' days... perhaps this could be turned into something to enhance those displays.

I like the fact that it is her handwritten signature transformed into stainless steel. Smile

The signature part of the stamp is rather deep, making it possible to sharpen or smoothen it as needed over the years.

My own version of the stamp, not yet ordered, can be seen here. (It is for my personal use, so not available for ordering, but I gladly share the idea and the concept.)

This one has a more robust shaft shaped like a cross or an "+", widening to stamp head size at the front.
