Memorable Stamps


We invited 6 selected artists to design for the Stamp Show Hong Kong 2012'
Memorable Stamps

There are (8) designs in total.

I expected visitors keep stamping these stamps during the show, so we re-make them in the machine-made stamps for more durable

the one designed by Tomoko Tsukui remains as an original rubber board,
Please be considerate to the other visitors; only the Tomoko Tsukui' one should be used in RED ink-pads.

絵封筒

I am gonna fainted soon..

atelier g delivered her latest addiction of making an illustration-envelope.
beautifully-made!!!

actually this time some artists asked me whether they can deliver some of the paper-goodies or related items using their own original stamps to the show?!

I suggested this time we only focus on "Handcarved Stamps", so that we can easily control all the creation during the event. 

...However, I know it is soo attractive to carry those related creations made by the artists....
how's that?!
after the show...we will let all the artists to show anything they like!

(...but please give me a break straight after the show,
coz there is another exhibition will start on the 20th of July/2012)

3.20.2012

Million Thanks to ALL!!

although the entry just we made this morning, we received a lot of supporters love to carry a Mission Anny...and it is totally out of our expectation (coz the majority would like to have each colour of sticker and badge...), thats why we immediately adviced BOUS to deliver another certain number to meet the needs for the Stamp Show!

if you are living far away from us, and it is hardly to take a ride to Central...
we are very flexible for you to give us a call or e-mail us for the number and colour you requested, so that we'd love to send it to you by post, or keep it in-safe to prevent from the hassle during the show.

Only ONE COIN of HK$10
you can adopt one sticker, or pin brooch during the Stamp Show.

Tea Bag Coaster?!


getting used to the rough life-style in Hong Kong...
culture-shock sometimes return to Japan, for the considerable attitudes towards everything -_-" this time I was so shocked of "Tea Bag Coaster"

---------------------------

getting a final preparation for the Stamp Show;
and now I am waiting for another huge box from Tomoko Tsukui, assist her to seek for a nice frame for her artworks in Hong Kong...

at the same time I was scolding myself to get updated for the petit morpho Japan, coz there are lots of information and pictures need to be updated -_-"
I will immediately follow up when the show starts...

3.14.2012

[itinerary]

now I am working on the [itinerary]
for the artist during the stay in Hong Kong for the workshop and exhibition
.....due to her tight schedule, I am a bit headache of how to squeeze the time for the press interview we received.

3.13.2012

refreshment

take a rest with a cup of tea...

a newly built hotel invited us to have a trial stay,
I forwarded this mission to my partner to have a try...

It is very interesting, some artists included some snacks, and instant hot drinks with the creation.  They know I am getting busy in organizing, and managing everything for the show...and kindly added some refreshment to me to take?! sooo moved!!

3.12.2012

GOOD LUCK!

so far, we received partial collection from 1/5 artists,
however the boxes were fully-occupied placed at the back door of the office...
I couldn't imagine when all the creations arrived -_-"

it is definitely a difficult decision for everyone to make when you see thousand of creations in one time, and each one is sooo unique, and amazingly nice from the stamp' design to the packaging!

even for me as a Stamp-Lover....it is difficult to make.....

GOOD LUCK!

when I am being an Octopus...I received this to make my day!!!

this is from the artist I met at the Instructors' Gathering in Tokyo last time, she came up to me and asked me for the address, coz she would like to send me a stamp after returning her home town.....she said she feel embarrased of she didnt prepare a nicer one to give me on that day!

when I said, "Thank You"
...but I keep asking "why you wanna send me a stamp?!"

...what she replied is, "coz I am living in Nagasaki, and I do stamps-carving by myself lonely in that place...and I wish someone may cheer me up to continue the creation!"

...very moved!!

3.03.2012

impressive!!!


the story is ....
we received an enquiry from the visitor from Madrid, Spain early last week...
who is coming to travel to Hong Kong on the first week of Stamp Show.
She is seeking us for the Stamps-Carving workhop while she is travelling in Hong Kong.

I was quite surprised of this enquiry, and immiedately made a special arrangement for her to offer a private workshop by outsourcing the qualified instructor.

She introduced her teacher - Ms. Ishtar Olivera (I think I can name her as a multi-crafter) who teaches Stamps-Carving in Madrid, and I had few conversations made with her ...we both are feeling very excited to organize something together in the near future in Spain.

wowow!!
petit morpho is getting more be international to connect all the Stamps-Carving Lovers in the world.

Ms. Thierry Chow is showing
"The Secret of the Journey" in her Solo Exhibition

would that be a marketing strategy?!
what a coincidence, she is being featured with his dad on the current issue of weekly local magazine. Do you remember I introduced Clement Chan to Thierry last time?!
(you can track back to the past entry at here, and here)

Clement is now crazily busy in having a shooting of the coming new season of
The America's Next Top Model, as a judge.....it will be interesting I believe!
