A customer ordered 7 sconces with a custom design; a Texas ranch brand. They provided a thumbnail image. We took it into Adobe Illustrator, traced it and saved it as a vector file. Then it was scaled to fit the sconce keeping in mind that it will shrink 12% after firing. We printed, traced and carved this pattern into clay. Then we poured a polyurethane mold. Once the mold has been removed, it’s ready to use as a custom design stamp. The brand will be pierced so that light shines through at night.
