I do believe the stamps turned out nicely giving a good pattern to the hammers. I must try with some different glazes.

Thor's Hammer Ceramic Ornaments
I am not the greatest ceramicist in the world but I do love making things. So I decided to make some Thor's Hammer ornaments for my Etsy Shop. Mjolnir has become very popular with Chris Hemsworth playing a very hot Thor so normal people have become more aware of the Norse myths. The ornaments I crafted are ceramic and designed to hang in the house or on yee ol' Yule tree. Since I cannot draw I ordered some very nice stamps from Highlander Celtic Stamps. The stamps I ordered were unmounted to be flexible on clay and did have a nice deep etching so the patterns were visible once stamped. I have another set of Celtic symbol stamps but these are only good for paper and are to detailed for pottery.
