have you tried drawing directly onto a plate ?

it can be rather fun, lino or wood need a different drawing style to engraved,etched or mezzo methods but tis fairly obvious what sort of mark will work for the intended technique of making a groove or surface

My boss in Porthmadog pottery could draw directly onto linoblocks in reverse...possibly being very dyslexic helped....

Hans Coper made impressions on clay, inked and one off printed. i saw them in a joint exhibition of his and Lucie Rie's work on the South Bank in London an age ago.

I feel I need a different method,but lino will do for now,and mastering one well to start with is no bad thing.
Hopefully back to claywork soon as well

litho is rather jolly.

with quite a lot of subjects the reversal thing is not an issue, it can look as good either side of the mirror

Looks good Gz. Interesting the previous discussion too. I have a handedness problem but am not dyslexic, although son is, but I 'see' things mirror image, so sometimes learn things left rather than right handed. Found it useful when studying isomers at college though.
