Time for Tea

Time for Tea

11″ round                                          Time for Tea is an assemblage piece in my teapot series. The plate is a heavy metal, and I love the scroll-like edging of it. The corresponding clock was made in Germany, is an antique and no longer works, but the lines of it are beautiful, the detail in the face and finials make me smile.

Time for Tea

The single serve teapot was found in an antique shop. The simple lines of it called to me. The tea cup is also an antique and is rimmed in 18kt gold. The pouring tea is made of beads, chain, wire and a piece of satin hem ribbon.

Time for Tea

Taking time for tea is not just about having a hot beverage; it is about taking time for yourself. The ritual of making tea and enjoying it, is self-indulgence of the most deserved kind. I hope that this reminder is one that will encourage the viewer to take a moment to love oneself.

The Dress Doctor

The Dress Doctor

9″ x 16″  The Dress Doctor is an assemblage that hangs on the wall. Part of a series I am doing that utilizes old books, this piece pays homage to those seamstresses of yore. My grandmother was one of them. The book is embellished with an image of an old sewing machine, much like the one she used.

The piece is created inside of a wooden box top, which is covered in pattern paper. Lining the box is a cardboard box for a vital tool, the hem marker, which is mounted to the side of frame. I love the iconic image of a woman.

The Dress Doctor

I created a wire dress form and mounted it to the side, balancing the image from the front cover. And what dress maker would be able to work without pins? A line of which frames the top corner.
