午后秘境 The Oasis Stamp Set

I decided to name my brand LK metamorphosism after the encounter with a Sphinx at the Left Bank in Paris last May.  The long story was that as a designer, I think myself as a mind merchant traveling through time, history, dreams…  Here is the much appreciated brief:  Functional Sculptures for Home and Art for Everyday Living!


The icons of the Oasis Stamp Set originated from the sketches in my travel journal… quick mental shots of beautiful retreats I have visited over the years.  Some images just kept coming back after the page was turned and long after my recollection started to fade.


Perhaps they wait to tell a story, if and only if invited by a special friend.
小小的印章組, 靈感來自旅行的幽然秘境. 長窗, 陽傘, 芭蕉, 竹椅… 誰曾任時光流逝於傘下窗前佇立?



'Oh yes, set the windows on this wall and please move the sunbrella just a foot to the right…' Sorry if I ignore your question… I am in the middle of building my Sanctum Sanctorum : )
圖章很奇妙, 鄭重壓下有打包票的意思. 我喜歡蓋印構思卡片, 比寫現成的卡片多費少少時間但增添些許手工樂趣和溫暖心意.


A creative desk is a messy desk but never without a logic.
視覺挑戰ㄧ. 將同樣的影像複刻在不同的材質上, 薄紙清晰纖弱, 厚紙吸彩溫厚包容, 棉布欲拒還迎的紋理深蘊著古樸.



Try viewing an image through the bottom of a wine glass… one might find a deserted shore at sunset or a crime scene, all depends on the libation.
視覺挑戰二. 透過光影看世界. 記得張愛玲的'傾城之戀'曾形容杯中暗褐的茶水茶葉如熱帶叢林… 來杯紅酒吧!


At last or at least, let these brain-teasers unleash the birds fluttering within. Let them take you away on a journey…
視覺挑戰三. 放手畫, 從著色開始!

Miss LK 的印章充滿了南洋風情,想必是反映了旅居新加坡的所見所聞...
我家母親大人退休前曾經收集印章,當時身為國中教師常常自製好寶寶貼紙發給學生兌換獎品。可惜她已經退休了,不然這套印章一定非常好用。(也許現在可以改發好寶寶貼紙給我爸... :P)
不曉得可以點播 LK Studio 產品嗎?我是碗盤收集狂,請問 LK Studio 有沒有出碗盤的計畫? ^o^

Oh,完全附和material girl的建議,再加個flatware如何?我常在etsy找得頭暈!小學國中時期,還蠻流行收集印章的,幾年前曾買過WS的personal embosser,但已不知去向。:)

同求碗盘!我去年才升级为人妻,买碗盘这种事极有成就感~

有碗話碗 Rice Bowl Tales said...

很有意思的一套印章。我知道有一個女孩子會很喜歡的。( 小安麗 )可以用它們變化出不同的圖畫和故事,謝謝給予啟示。Email 已 sent 了給你 :)

Miss LK said...

MG,
小V和LK先生都不受教, 不然我也要蓋印自製好寶寶貼紙 :)

Oasis Stamp Set靈感來自我喜歡的旅館... Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, Four Seasons Chiang Mai, Raffles Singapore...

有出陶碗的計劃喔! 正與清邁的工匠協商中, 因為其中ㄧ款量產始終達不到平穩水準... in the process of trouble shooting.

V,
flatware也有... 不過目前只有tea spoon :) stay tuned.

我自己是印章收藏狂(WS的embosser用來蓋書章), 有老朋友來信訂購揶揄敝人only you can get away with calling stamps 'Functional Sculptures for Home and Art for Everyday Living'... LOL

Miss LK said...

Silvia,

大家都如此期待碗盤, 害我開始擔心... 我的設計蠻另類的, 可能推出時會嚇人ㄧ跳吧?

Jane,

希望小安麗會喜歡... 也謝謝你再次選用我的設計as a gift to someone special in your life. This makes very happy and means a lot!

我也發現了 Miss LK 喜歡收集印章...
我才發現了一個刻橡皮章的網誌,有一些還蠻有趣的喔(尤其是台北市的水溝蓋部份...)

MG,
我喜歡收藏的怪玩意真是不少... 錢都燒在這兒哪!

那個橡皮印章網站好可愛!!! 而且還是格主自己刻的, 甘拜下風 :)
