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!"
