Lunartik in a Cup of Tea Series One

How far does one go with one’s cup of tea? All the way to Europe and back! That’s how far!

Matt Jones AKA Lunartik, has just finished his first leg of his ‘Custom Tea Tour’ to help launch his new toy ‘Lunartik in a Cup of Tea Series One’. He set sail on his tour at Forbidden Planet in London, and aims to travel to Amsterdam, Vienna, Glasgow and end the year in Manchester.

For the tour Matt teamed up with 24 of the world’s finest artists to produce a fantastic range of custom Teas! Amongst the lineup are Jeremyville, Kenn Munk, Tado, Pete Fowler, I Love Dust and Jon Burgerman.

Each one has been lovingly crafted by each artist using the Milky DIY as a template to create their own vision of a lovely cup of tea. Along with these pieces you will get the chance to see the original sculpts made from resin, a selection of silicon casts and some of Matt’s sketch books from 2006.

Matt will be at most venues to sign the toys and will be bringing some extra special brews along! So be sure to make a note of your nearest tour to land the chance to buy some rare flavors including The Earl, which is only available from www.lunartik.com and as part of this tour.
