Originals from Naoko Stoop


Some of the customers feeling curious of any Originals from Naoko Stoop arrived in-store lately in petit morpho?!

YES, we do have three (3) Originals just brought back from the last year Tokyo Exhibition.

We will display it by this weekend.

in the cloud


luckily...
I have a little break for today while the artist is setting up her exhibition in the office...
I went inside of the cloud this morning (I mean in the steam room -_-")


oh~ Hong Kong is very polluted.
it is not good for people to live for long!!
the government should do something for the double-decker bus...

every time I returned Hong Kong from Japan,
Hong Kong smells bad, and getting more and more dirty in everywhere.

artists introduction

artists introduction
of Part 1 of the Stamp Show keep updating everyday!

some people keep asking me....
"will xxx coming?"
"why I cannot see xxxx on the list?"

Please don't get worried!!
we just introduced half of the participants at this stage.

Please do a study before you see the real creation from the first day of the show.
I expect all of you will get a panic or you will face the difficulties of choosing during the show!

outsource' opportunity

we keep receiving offers time-to-time from the public of seeking a qualified Stamps-Carving Instructor to give a workshop in Schools, Offices, and Community Centres.

since we reached a certain number of qualified instructors in Hong Kong at this moment, from now on when we received an offer, we will automatically do a matching with the clients' requirements, and offer an outsource to the Instructors.

If you are working on the Instructor' Qualification Certificate at this stage, and if you feel interested in and willing to receive a workshop offer from petit morpho.
Please kindly contact us for the good opportunity.  

exceptional for the student


I usually turned down for the personal interview from the press,
but it is always exceptional for the student who needs to hand in the assignment.

seems, every year there is a secondary school student approached me for the personal interview. They need to select a person to have an interview, and write a certain number of words to hand in for the school assignment.

this young lady really did a good preparation before questioning me.
the interview took nearly one hour yesterday!

actually she loves Handmaking,
and it is so surprised of receiving this Thank You card after the interview.

as a Guest Speaker


the whole day meeting at the Instructors' gathering
from 10:00am to 4:00pm
on February 18 (Saturday)/2012'

I woke up at 7:00pm; but most of the Instructors are not living in Tokyo, so they took a bullet train from their home town to Tokyo, some Instructors mentioned they woke up at 4:00am. Thanks for attending the meeting with us!

(the experienced Instructor is demo-teaching how she gives a workshop, and share the information with the other Instructors. This session is very good for the Instructors who just received the Qualification, and learn the know-how and techniques of giving a workshop by themselves.)

actually I am sooo sleepy for the whole day meeting, coz we just had an Opening Reception for the Eric Luk' Photography Exhibition the day before.

I was being invited as a Guest Speaker,
to talk about the Concept of petit morpho..
to talk about the Stamp Show Hong Kong..

First time meeting in person with the greatest artist: こまけいこ who released quite a lot of books (after Tomoko Tsukui), and also produced her own brand of fabric inkpads.

She is also one of the Guest Speakers in this meeting.
coz she released quite alot of books, so she shared some of the experiences and afterthoughts of making a book.


eh? what happened?!
こまけいこ and I are feeling lonely?!
watching what all the Instructors are doing for?!


I believe this little girl is the youngest Instructor that I ever met.
I think she is 6 or 7 years old age?
She came with her mother! 


Exchanging name cards with the Instructors...
actually I remember this lady, I met her two years ago at Stamp' event in Japan.
Unfortunately, she forgot me...and keep saying sorry to me, hahahhah!
こまけいこ is laughing for our conversation!!

busy me...busy me....
bowing for million times I think.

どうぞ宜しくお願い致します!


I had a chance to meet some of the Examiners who marked the papers for the Stamps-Carving Certificates, they are sooo professional!!

-----------------------
from this year, petit morpho is carrying a mission to lead the potential Instructors & Artists to show their artistic side, so it is a very good channel for the Artists who want to show their works by holding exhibition, and participating in different events we organized.

There are around 200 qualified Instructors,  plus a hundred of Artists doing their own way within Japan.  petit morpho is now selecting for the BEST from the huge pool for the upcoming projects.

Lunch meeting at Tokyo Midtown


I had a Lunch meeting regarding to the Exhibition preparation with 津久井 智子, and Hinodewashi Co., Ltd
at 六本木 Tokyo Midtown
on February.15 (Wednesday)/2012'


what a charming young lady...
definitely she is spreading out an artistic atmosphere from her speaking. 

It is because she is first time showing her works out of Japan, so she would like to understand more what kind of styles and designs Hong Kong people may fond of.


I prepared a little gift to her...which is a mohair scarf!!

Looking forward to seeing her in person right?!
お楽しみに~

「奥行き」 「立体感」

One day, I showed the entire artists' handcarved stamps to my mom for the consultation.
She is also an artistic person, so her comments also very valuable to me!

I asked, "What is the difference between Japan, and Hong Kong stamp-carving artists?"

She said, "they are overall very good in skills and lovely for the designs; but Hong Kong artists' are not attractive enough...."

she comments, "there is no 奥行き(depth) for the Hong Kong artists'...the design is very flat; Japanese artists are very sensitive in lines to made it thick or thin to make the general image having more 立体感(stereoscopic effect)” She especially feel amazed of the lines of SnowyCrystal, she said this artist has a strong drawing power to make sure to show the specific line to be thick, and to be thin. No wonder her creations keep catching the repeaters to adopt since 2008.

Stamps-carving is a kind of Art Engraving.

After the Stamp Show, petit morpho will focus on carrying the potential artists to lead them to the artistic way by organizing different activities and events in Asia-Pacific region.
