Touchmarks


In tradition, artists in metal "signed" their work with a touchmark. A touchmark is an acronym or symbol which represents an individual or shop. It is usually a stamp or punch with a positive image (reversed or symmetrical) which is indented as a negative image - right reading. (Source: http://artist-blacksmith.blogspot.com/)

"One thing to remember is to talk to the animals. If you do, they will talk back to you. But if you don't talk to the animals, they won't talk back to you, then you won't understand, and when you don't understand you will fear, and when you fear you will destroy the animals, and if you destroy the animals, you will destroy yourself." -- Chief Dan George
