In addition to your name seals, your can have any number of leisure seals. These can be relief (yan) or intaglio (yin) and various shapes and sizes: large and small, square and oval, rectangular and irregular, even gourd-shaped. I am particularly fond of small thin ovals used as “starting seals”
Leisure seals can include your studio name – the intaglio oval above is “stone and water studio” – quotations from poems, sayings, or your own thoughts or philosophy.
You can also have archaic animals or birds.
Seals by famous carvers.
