Why Relyef pottery tools
100% WITHOUT EDGES
Each stamp is designed to the smallest detail and without any unwanted lines on the edges (which occur in home-made stamps).
This makes it possible for you to stamp as deep as the clay allows.
And you always know with absolute accuracy where you are stamping.
The stamps can be used not only on ceramic clay but also on polymer clay, metal clay, or soaps
ANGLED SHAPE FOR EASY CUTTING
All stamps have a so-called graduated angle to achieve the best impression in the clay.
Thanks to this, the stamps respect the behavior (movement) of the clay and the clay is not pulled out of the decor after the stamp is printed.
Resulting in clean and sharp imprint of the pattern in the clay.
The stamps bear the Rélyéf logo, which marks the bottom side of the design. So you don't have to worry whether your stamp is oriented correctly. This is especially useful for alphabets where some letters are easily interchangeable.
Each stamp has a hole for a wooden stick, which makes it easier to work with. The rollers can be rolled with your fingers or with the handle.
We are making various holders and boxes for clearer handling and safer storage of the stamps.
Stamps are made from biodegradable bioplast (PLA - polylactic acid). It is hard and durable material. Do not worry, the stamps will only degrade in a compost heap.
See the instructions on how to keep our tools in great condition for many years.
We are always looking for new ways how to produce and sell our tools that have minimal impact on the environment.
FOR EVERYONE - PROFESSIONALS, LECTORS, BEGINNERS OR KIDS
We have heard opinions that stamping is not creative enough. Our experience is the opposite. Using stamps develops creativity, customers are no longer afraid that the decoration will spoil their product. The stamps support fine motor skills resulting in gradually improving other decoration techniques.
Stamps are a great helper for pottery teachers or teachers in schools. It can also be a great tool for hobby ceramists in creating a gift for their loved ones, or professionals who can process their decorative potential in a new, non-traditional way.

"These ceramic stamps are the best ever!"
The impression they make on the clay is clear, there is no sticking to the stamp so you get such a nice impression. I gave my first set to a friend and ordered a second set for myself. This shop ships incredibly fast, so don't worry about buying if you are in the US, you will get your stuff quickly. Thank you Relyef! I will definitely be purchasing more stamps from you in the future."

"No words to express how well crafted they are."
Dear Relyef, whoever is there in your team, this special message out for you. The stamps are just superb. No words to express how well crafted they are. Even the roller I bought in a set, is just perfect. Kudos! Best regards,
