Greentea

Image

8″ x 8″  Greentea is part of my teapot assemblage series. The base was a Celtic knot-like decorative piece. Holding the small teapot is an old metal candlestick. The “tea” is made of beads, antique dressmaker’s sequins and wire.

These ceramic teapots are delightful to see but the feel of them is even better. I imagine it warm and full of aromatic liquid, but empty, it is smooth as eggshells and holds the warmth of the hands that cradle it.

Service for One

Service for One

11″ x 11″    Service for One is an assemblage piece in my teapot series. The parts pull together as I find them, creating a whole. The silver plate was found in Goodwill; I love the tarnished finish. The teacup was from an antique store, and is full of “tea” comprised of chain and ribbon. The small coffee pot is also from Goodwill, reminiscent of one my grandmother used for years. It is held in the hand of an altered wire picture holder. Together the pieces create a common moment, an intimate happening.

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.

Purple Pleasure

Purple Pleasure

8″ x  8″  Purple Pleasure is an assemblage in my teapot series. I love the romantic feel of this one, from its soft color to the scrollwork base. The silver plate at the bottom is mysterious to me, as it isn’t really a plate, but isn’t a trivet either. The scrolled part was a candleholder. The tiny cup is a sweet espresso cup. Repurposing discarded items is my goal.

Dark Brew

Dark Brew

8″  x  8″   Dark Brew is an assemblage in my teapot series of sculptures. Using found objects and combining them into something new, this altered art takes recycling to a new level. Upcycling old pieces found at thrift stores, I create objects that will illicit a smile or thought.

Dark Brew is created from an old candleholder, small teapot and china teacup. The tea is created from beads and wire.

Tea Time

Tea Time

9″  x 16″  Tea Time is an assemblage piece wall hanging in my tea pot series. Created from gathered bits, it sets a tone of whimsy. An old metal trivet is the base, with miniature tea pot, pouring “tea” made with vintage dress maker sequins and beads into a miniature tea cup. The “clock” is created from  a silver photo frame and plastic chandelier prisms.

Forget Me Not Tea

Forget Me Not Tea

9″ x 5″   Forget Me Not Tea is an assemblage piece in my teapot series. Using an antique bronze colored teapot and antique teacup and saucer gives the piece a slightly traditional feel, while the scrolled candleholder and beaded and wire “tea” gives it a whimsical touch.
