5″ x 7″ x 13″ Not Quite Perfect is an assemblage. The silver teapot (my sister carried this back for me, but it broke in a move – I just couldn’t bear to throw it away) is from Morocco and exudes an elegance that carries down through the base of the work, an altered silver tone candlestick holder. Contrasting the sophistication is the simple antique tin cup, battered, but still receiving the offered tea. The pouring tea is created from antique dress makers sequins and beads; as it fills the tin cup, it becomes a golden nectar.
This piece feels somewhat of a self-portrait to me. I am the tin cup, not the teapot. By Heather Brush. For sale.
