Its amazing to see an idea you had once actually get used by someone else..sometimes it can piss you off and go "shit they stole my idea!!" or you can just be happy that someone went through with it and actually how good the out come is.. because lets face it....if its a good idea someone will defenitly do it before you or its already been done.
Last year I contacted the New English, an incredible ceramics company in England. I wanted to collaborate with them to produce a limited edition custom designed tea pot and tea cup collection, featuring various artists from the New contemporary art world. I had to hold off on the project and put it on the back burner. So...naturally when doing my weekly hunting for interesting things to post, I found that the great gallery in Berlin, Strychnin Gallery has already done it and the collection
