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:
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.
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.
