What is tea?
Dried leaves and flowers
encased in paper.
Just add water to release the wonderful flavors, and scents,
and reawaken the lives
of the flowers.

Here, I create my own brand of tea using one of my favorite subjects:
dried flowers.
To me, dried flowers are so much more interesting than live flowers;
the intricate details in the petals
the way the leaves curl in on themselves and
the subtle colors that remain as
a reminder of what once was.

Tea anyone?

These images are printed on used tea bags which I reassembled and sewed back together. The larger prints are used tea bags collaged together and then printed. All are Pigment Prints on Albumen coated used tea bags.
