Stamp Carving

That was where it started but this amazing documentary describing how playing cards were originally created will give you some idea of where the stamp carving can go when the technique is pushed, pulled and extended until it reaches the natural conclusion.

The principals are all very much the same – just the material become harder and more resistant, which helps with the ideas and intricacies.
I also feel that the natural features of wood will transfer themselves onto the finished piece with shades of organic niceties.

If you want a pure and rigid, almost mathematically engineered print and stamp then stick with the man-made materials – it is really a matter o the feelings.
