tales of the polar bear button
Last year when in Tokyo, I took the above photo inside Yokocho Gallery.
The ceramic artist of the work above had heard of my blog via the gallery owner and then contacted me to ask if she could use the photo for her name card.
Ofcourse I was only too happy to supply Yuko the image to use, infact I was a little flattered.
As a thank you for supplying Yuko with the hi res image she had sent me parcel with three very sweet ceramic buttons.
Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to be asked if I would like to have a little peak into the making of Pip's 'Sew La Tea Do' book. On my way to the studio I asked Pip if there was anything that I could bring, to which she asked if I had some spare buttons. One of those buttons I took along that day was the ceramic polar bear button gifted to me by Yuko, so from Tokyo to Melbourne to page 115 that is the tale of the polar bear button.
