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.
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.
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.
