REALLY it is so hard to convey just how perfectly made these tiny porcelain creatures are,
you need to hold one in your hands,
feel the smooth,
glassy glaze next to the warm and fuzzy felt.


(the raw clay colour is beautiful too.)

introducing: Sieben Morgen

(one of my favourite country-side houses)

we would like to introduce a Stamp Designer: Ms. Tinee Häcker from Germany


she is a very considerable lady, well-packed nicely for each stamp with a pizza box...to show everyone her debut collection in Hong Kong.

here is the message from her:

"Hello, my name is Tinee Häcker.
I'm a freelance artist, illustrator and printmaker from Stuttgart, Germany.

In 2007 I have launched my little label Sieben Morgen to offer original prints, handprinted paper goods and all kind of souvenirs from my printing studio. My favourite techniques are linocut, collage and handcarved rubberstamps.

The first stamp ever that I have carved was a classic chop stamp. I had brought some blank soapstone chops from a very inspiring trip to Bejiing some years before and this started everything.

Today, after 10 years of carving, I'm very happy to present the first Sieben Morgen Stamp Edition to Hong Kong here at Petit Morpho!
 
My early handcarved rubberstamps served as prototypes for these signature stamps. They are made of grey rubber which gives a great print, which is easy to clean and suitable for all kind of inks, mounted on eco-friendly beech wood from german origin.
 
Besides of my love for stamps and prints, I like cake for breakfast, singing cats and birds, polar bears and childhood stories. I like to think of my work as a tribute to every day's beauty. It's all about love, respect and dedication.

Thank you, Dankeschoen!"

but still ....

I thought I am getting better than last week from the illness....
but still ....not in the Best condition

catch up with the appointment with two young ladies who are going to hold their exhibition, and my former company' boss is coming to Hong Kong to say hi to me on this weekend, so I think I may need to take more rest either on bed or at the corner in the office -_-"

new stamp designers' from Germany and New York, their creation had already arrived in-store. Why not poping in to check them out before I dropped an introduction here!

Thank You!! Sept Bleus


First time to show hats in petit morpho...
First time to introduce Sept Bleus in Hong Kong...



the feedback was good, although we expected Hong Kong people are not used to wear hats on street, at least they would feel interests and amazed of the design and comfortable fabrics and texture of hats when trying on each.


men are always complaining for no choices of hats in Hong Kong...
Sept Bleus Homme...to request the needs for them.


different nationalities of visitors in and out....
finally I was not feeling well on the last day of exhibition -_-"

Sept Bleus visiting Jaycow' studio


Jaycow Millinery invited Sept Bleus to her studio....
sharing information and the latest works she did.


visit so many times to Jaycow' studio, so I am playing with my ownself...
touch here and there....saying hi to her pet: turtles


ofcourse, not to forget to get an autograph from Sept Bleus...


Sept Bleus feels excited of all the hats made by Jaycow....
wanna try this and that, and Jay assists her to put properly on her head nicely


they both are stylish person!!...
however, I can see Jaycow' studio is getting more messy and messy each time I visited -_-"
seems she is living in a garage....


because Jay bought one of the hats from Sept Bleus' exhibition, so she is now getting me a cheque.....but Sept Bleus is having fun on her back being "Marie Antoinette" 


do you remember this hat with lots of feather in different colours were being shown in the window-display at Joyce boutique in Central before?

.....that was huge and heavy!!


.........checking out some books related to hats and fashion
see??!!! the white chair was feeling lonely.

Jay loves all hats, especially the one made in 和紙 which is very new and amazed to everyone. Thats why she adopted one from the collection, and also the red heart brooch!!

my latest addiction

my hair getting longer and longer to the shoulder now....
so I am now addicted to collect different sizes and colours of hair-clips

....my addiction always depends on that moment, thats why "my rubbish collection" kept in everywhere....and always feeling headache of the storage -_-"

a step-up of our Instructor


since the year of opening, our policy never change....
we don't offer any materials at all, even Customers are strongly requesting.
...coz I specially don't like facing those deadly materials everyday in-store, I prefer starring at our selected artists' creations which are more attractive to us!

nowadays, there are lots of people knowing the way to get the basic materials for Stamps-Carving, it is very good for everyone to easily start this hobby without worrying about the lack of materials, and tools.

--------------------
Here is a quick update for our Japanese Instructor!

after the article released, she received an offer from the multi-national companies to be invited to give a group workshop from November onwards, if you are looking for her private workshop, please keep a patience till next year February/2012'

It is good for her to have a step-up to challenge and promote the joy of Stamps-Carving, spending time with a group of thirty people in 2.5 hours, ofcourse I will accompany her to assist and do a translation.....I think I would be the tirest one -_-"

we treat "them" as....


we treat "them" as FINE JEWELRY...
to place a security guard to accompany with "them" to prevent from any damages occured during the shootings.

if you notice from any Japanese wedding magazine, and Fashion magazine, they love placing the flowers to touch up a little bit; However in Hong Kong, we rarely can see the flowers, I mean a bouquet when presenting with the wedding dress (probably they dont have any additional budget on buying fresh flowers coz it is easily died, fresh flowers cannot stay for half days, or even a whole day), thats the reason....our preserved flowers are very popular for the location shootings, and decor a little bit for the background.

...especially for the "cascade" style (below), because they are large in size....and the colour combination is very comfortable-looking compared to any floral shops in Hong Kong.

if you view closely, and compared to any designs in the outside market...
the way of designing the handle and the ribbon arrangement are presented in very modern, not just simply wrapping around and tie it up a simple ribbon.

I notice majority of brides in Hong Kong are not realized that there is a rule of holding a bouquet in a correct way -_-"


each floral creation has their own name as an art-piece...
coz they are one-of-a-kind "floral-piece"

"Mist", and "Ocean Secret" are being used for the fashion shootings last week.
