Russian Dolls For Pocko/ Magma London Show

The first batch of these dolls were jinxed and were sadly stolen whilst on route to London (boo hiss). The good news is that the second batch look heaps better. I didn't photograph the first set and wish that I had so I made an effort to document these just incase I never see them again. These dolls will be showcased along with the big daddy doll (who is currently on holiday at the Pocko gallery in Milan, you can see him here in a previous blog post) and a whole host of super fine Pocko artists at the London Design Festival. The show will take place at Magma in Clerkenwell, London starting from the 19th September until the 19th October, and then they will cross the pond to the Big Apple for another exhibition. I'm going to try and figure out how I can fit in the these dolls so that I can go too!
