Lunartiks Custom Tea Tour!

‘Lunartiks Custom Tea Tour’
A touring exhibition of customised cups of tea by great artists!

Matt JOnes launched the new toys along with the ‘Custom Tea Tour’ at Forbidden Planet in London on 29th August 2009, with tea and chats for everyone who turned up! In September the tour moved over to Amsterdam where Lunartik had a very relaxing cuppa with their tea-loving partners in Holland!

Lunartik's exhibition is now featuring in the prestigious SIXXA STORE in Vienna from the 2nd-13th October, with a Toy Signing on the 10th October.

In November the tour will return back to good old Blightly and up to Scotland to the ‘Fat Buddha Store’, then in December from the 3rd-13th the Tea Tour will continue and feature at the 'Richard Goodall Gallery' in Manchester. Over the Christmas period Matt and the tour will be taking a well deserved (tea-)break. Looking forward to the New Year when the tour will be off again to spread the love for tea and custom art around the rest of the world with the ‘The Custom Tour’ part II.

Special Guest artists have been asked to customise cups along each leg of the tour. So when Lunartik will finally be finishing the tour in mid 2010, there should be over 30 custom toys, which will be auctioned off to a well deserving charity; and we shall be looking forward to launching the next Series of 'Lunartik in a cup of tea'!
