How to Make Tessellations with Simple Bisque Stamps

Posted On June 12, 2013 2 Comments

Amy Meya was fascinated by tessellation — the repeated use of a single shape without gaps or overlapping — and wanted to figure out a way to incorporate tessellating patterns into her work. At first she tried to make a mosaic with tessellated tiles, but wasn’t happy with the results. So she came up with another method in which she created bisque stamps that would create tessellations. In today’s post, an excerpt from the May/June 2013 issue of Pottery Making Illustrated, she explains how to use them to on slabs to make beautiful wall tiles. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
