A Short Overview of the Stamps of Amphora

Amphora is styled as 'The Continent of the Future.'  In the year 2000
I issued various stamp books with stamps from Amphora. One was
entitled 'The Mermaids of Amphora.'  It featured ceramic Goddess
sculptures that I created in the 1990's. This book was followed with
a humorous stamp book showing my ceramic seahorse sculptures.
This latter book was called 'The Seahorses of Amphora.'


The sheet above, entitled 'The Portal of the Seasky,' displays a series
of digital variations on a recent drawing.

'Serial art' is defined as any sort of art, painting, sculpture, or photography,
etc. that renders an image in multiples, usually with color or textural variations.
