Regarding deeply etched rubber stamps, how to make them?

I'm new at this. I found a piece of glassware covered with bubble bumps. When people want a texture stamp would they want a stamp that has the bumps sticking out (which would make indentations in the clay) or would most people want the rubber stamp to have indented bumps (holes) so that when the person used it they would end up with bumps on their clay? Also does anyone know where to buy the rubber to make rubber stamps?

Well, often good "stamps" can be made as innies or outies of the same pattern... just depends on the effect you want.
Technically, I guess, for a bumpy surface, the first "stamp" you'd make would be called a *shallow mold,* and if you then made a stamp of that shallow mold its reverse version would be called a "stamp" since it's a duplicate of the original.

Since you mentioned "clay," you might also be interested in looking at the stamp that was made by one polymer clayer from just such a bumpy glass:
http://www.desiredcreations.com/howTo_CAReptSkinMG.htm
(here it's used to "distort" layers of different-colored clay so that a "mokume gane" technique can be done, rather than making a mold though)

As for where you can buy rubber to make stamps, there are various ways to go:

You can buy real rubber (or the other stuff that's often sold to rubberstampers these days), then "carve" Your Own
You can buy one of those rubbery white block erasers if if the pattern isn't too large, then carve your own stamp with small gouging tools.
You can Make Your own stamps with uncured rubber or "clear polymer" with various kits and special lights and equipment.
You can make your own stamps with Polymer Clay, then bake in a home oven.
You can make your own stamps with a two-part silicone molding material.
You can make even make some stamps with things like certain glues.

Or... you can draw (or photocopy or print out) the patterns or images you want, in the size you want, on a 7x9" sheet of White Paper, then send them to "ReadyStamps" where they will make you a sheet of stamps of the drawings you sent, and they will also include (if you request it) two other versions so you can have molds too.

Check these pages at my site for info on making All Kinds of those molds and stamps, and more info on ReadyStamps:

Rubber Stamps: Marking History

Rubber stamps have an interesting history for those who don't know that they might have been inspired by dentures. Yes, it's true: dental dentures! But first off, Charles Goodyear had to discover the secret to vulcanization. This is the process of "curing" rubber such that it can be molded as needed. Before Goodyear's discovery, rubber -- in its natural state -- was not very practical to work with. It is sticky but would not stay set in any one particular shape. With vulcanization, rubber, once cooled, would hold the shape in which it had been molded.

Many applications were thus found for rubber (poor Mr. Goodyear, incidentally, did not benefit financially from his invention, however, though he was publicly recognized by the Emperor of France and decorated with highly prestigious medals). One of these was dentures. Rubber was determined to be great replacement material for the dentures of the day, which were often made of metal or even wood! Dentists were making their own dentures, and one of these dentists, it eventually turned out, had a curious nephew who started manufacturing rubber stamps for the U.S. Postal Service. This nephew, James Woodruff, is credited with inventing the quality rubber stamp we have come to know. There are, actually, many different origins for rubber stamps, depending on exactly how a rubber stamp is to be defined, with some stretching back to Mayan civilization! The version just presented here is among the most widely accepted ones for those marking devices which we today would most immediately recognize as being rubber stamps.

Another quite popular and widely accepted contender for the honor of having invented the rubber stamp was L.F. Witherell, who went so far as to compose a document with the name of "How I Came to Discover the Rubber Stamp"." He claimed to have gotten inspiration from his work as a foreman at a wooden pump manufacturing facility. Apparently, there was an identification marking problem of some kind where the paint would run, creating blotches on these pumps. Witherell hit upon the idea of creating stencils out of thin sheets of rubber packing. But while making the stencil, he thought to simply create thick letters out of the rubber, then gluing them to a backing of wood, with which he could make repeated impressions of his own initials.

The one considered least likely to have invented the rubber stamp, Henry C. Leland, was actually championed, ironically, at the time by no other than in an issue of the "Stamp Trade News" from a manufacturer of rubber stamps. But whatever the actual origins, there is no doubt that the rubber stamp itself has left quite an impression on our lives.
