Baker's Marks

I ran across a link about baker's marks, used to identify the baker that created the loaf in medieval times. Like a moth to a flame, I'm feeling the need to create my own. The writer of the article had theirs made out of silver, I'm thinking that I'll try ceramics for my first try. Clay and a glaze just might do the job.

Here is the link.

Hi Harold--
I read about the baker's marks and thought it was a great idea. I enjoy your site.

Thanks. I have an idea using both wooden tokens carved with a dremel, and cutting up silicone mats to see if they work. The hard part is waiting until I actually need bread again before baking more.
