Matthew and I sign our railings, and if you look, usually in the lower right newel post (as you face the stairs) you'll find our touchmark. Other times it is more hidden and you have to look for it.
|My own personal touchmark & stamp, which I made & started to use in 2004|
In individual candelabras and small items that we've made, Matthew uses his small touchmark "m", and/or I use my "k" if we work alone.

If you are a smith and would like to send Linda Murphy your touchmark, snail mail a sample to Murphy Collection Touchmark Garden - P.O. Box 834 - Cedar Ridge, CA 95924. She asks that you please include a pebble from your part of the world to add to the lucky pebble collection as well, and also *very important*, please include information on yourself for the portfolio of the smiths that will be on display at smithing events she attends in the future.
