What is tea?

Dried leaves and flowers

encased in paper.

Just add water to release

the wonderful flowers and scents,

and reawaken ther lives of the flowers.


Here, I created 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 of 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 teabags

that I reassembled and stitched back together.

The larger prints are used teabags, 

collaged together and printed.

All are pigment prints on Albumen coated used tea bags.
