seee...how cute it is!!!

inspired by Starbucks Coffee

She will show her works next year in her Solo Exhibition in petit morpho!!

Looking forward!

thinking "as a whole"


did you enjoy your workshop with Tomoko Tsukui?
Please treasure the moment you shared the time with her.


She is first time experiencing like a Hollywood Celebrities (...or an actress) managed by other people, and couldn't believe that she could do so many things in such a short period of time in an extremely tight schedule.


dont forget my full-time jobs before was a Personal Assistant to the Company Chairman, all the efficiency skills, and the time management learnt from my previous career.

at that time, I was preparing for the 2-3 months long itinerary for the boss to fly over to different countries to make a proper business meeting appointment with different important people, to offer the BEST service and arrangement to each people. Thats why I am always thinking in different angles to make the best solution, always thinking "as a whole" to give a best service to make everyone feeling comfortable and happy.


You cannot make any mistake, or failure for the one-take event, so it is necessary to prepare everything in a proper time-management, and it is also need to prepare for the alternative way for just-in-case. "Flexibility" is also need to be considered.
"the image", and "the presentation" is always apply in all the situation.
An artist is always focusing on creating, thats why they need a management person to assist the part of presenting, and introducing their works. Thats' what petit morpho is taking a good care of each artist we carry!


doing a translation, socializing and taking a photo is a very very easy job for me if comparing to the management -_-"

You would understand I always put myself at LAST...
coz the artists, and the visitors are the most important elements to petit morpho.

"Shizue-Penguin"


three days workshop!

May.24-25-26/2012'

Everyone getting excited to see her in person, and learn the techniques and know-how of stamp-carving in the workshop.

all the important points of stamps-carving melted in my brain, coz I repeatly doing a translation for the workshops, hahahha!


she only used two simple tools:

super huge cutter-knife,
and
v-shaped carving knife

making your own penguin with your favourite wording insert inside of the tummy,
you can put an initial, a word, a logo, a number etc

she put my name inside of the tummy ^^

it is called a "Shizue-Penguin"

her birthday present!


 the origin of the stamp-carving actually is from our Greatest China, 
for a Stamp-Carving Artist, I believe she respects all the carving professionals from China.

That's what I prepared for her birthday present!

She is the First time seeing the stamps made by stone.
Feeling Excited!!!

It is because of her favourite "Elephant" on the top.


....wanna immediately stamp on the paper!

5.27.2012

Thank You!

She is returning to Japan today, but we have one more interview to go in the morning.

First of all,
Thank You to all members assisting me in the Part 2 of the show -
Stamp-Carving workshop by Tomoko Tsukui
.....being very helpful to assist me to get everything smoothly done before and through the workshops, and I believe you fully-enjoy yourself by learning for the special techniques directly from her.

Second,
Thank You to PaperArt
...to support the Stamp Show Hong Kong 2012' to make the Demonstration that we specially arranged to show how amazing for the inkpads she produced may use in such a beautiful way. Without your venue supporting, it is difficult to gather all the Stamp-Lovers and Craft-Lovers to view this show comfortably.

Finally,
Tomoko Tsukui mentioned and felt very appreciated to our invitation to Hong Kong to have a FIRST Solo Exhibition in her life, which is never thought of presenting in this artistic way.
She said she would like to re-set herself after returning to Japan, to spent time and effort on creating more and more artworks from now on.

seems, I have one more mission to carry to take a good care of her upcoming career path after the show in Hong Kong.

fingercrossed!!
we will do our best, will do more promotion and show her works in the near future!

------> a lot of pictures will be get uploaded after settling down all the outstanding tasks.


5.26.2012

See you today at PaperArt!

due to my "multi-roles" happening at the same time during the artist's stay in Hong Kong, it is hardly for me to pick up all the calls for any enquiries in these three days.

today would be the last day of the workshop, and we have a demonstration at PaperArt is the only chance to see her if you missed her workshop.

all participants attending the workshops were very excited and feeling amazed of her unique carving techniques and know-how that you never get the information in anywhere.

She only used a minimum number of carving tools, to create her works!

for the demonstration today, again you would feel amazing on her techniques of how to fully-use of the finger-tips inkpads she specially produced.

See you today at PaperArt
at 4:00pm-6:00pm

We will have a special arrangement after all the demonstration finished!
Thank You.

Getting excited!!! for everything on her first time coming to Hong Kong....

5.08.2012

my thoughts is...


it is an interesting article!!!
people who can master more than one language are building a more resilient brain, one more proficient at multi-tasking, setting priorities...etc

do I fit to this sample?!...

..however my thoughts is, there are alot of people can speak fluent languages in the world.
but there is not a lot of people have an ability to fully-use the languages to apply on their works.

"speaking a language fluently is not equal to the person working very outstanding!"
thats my conclusion -_-"

introducing: PORIGAMI



PORIGAMI is a collection of Tereza Hradilkova’s original designs inspired by Asian paper craft.
PORI is her nickname and GAMI(or KAMI) means paper in Japanese as a mark of respect for its traditional paper culture.
Originally an architect from Czech Republic, Tereza had the chance to see the Japanese culture from inside while living in Tokyo for 2 years. She enjoyed reading books from the local libraries about textile, woodprints, Chinese stamps and paper craft, especially the works by MASAHIRO CHATANI.

The Hong Kong collection is a result of two years experimenting with paper and her original handcarved stamps.


We are going to carry her a box set of 9 different designs of architecture using a recycled cardstock.

wishlist

when I received the wishlist from the artist of ...

what she wanna eat..
where she wanna go...
what she wanna experience...
what she wanna see....

...it is to satisfy her wishlist, I believe we have an extremely craziest time during her stay in Hong Kong....

She wanna eat hard and play hard besides working hard....so I need to re-make the itinerary by squeezing time from here and there.

after our mission completed, I will let you know.

one more thing, her beloved mother is coming with her friends to join her trip by taking this chance...
and the artist's request is......大排宴席 -_-"
