The tea ball was a challenge…the not-quite-solid surface, and that moiré effect when you look through the mesh…still think I could have done it better, maybe I’ll try again in a few days.

Those ‘shadows’…could’ve left those out. *swift mental kick in the butt*.
Have to learn when to quit…to know when it is enough, and let it be.

The Art of Tea Exhibition is on this weekend

Tactile Arts Exhibition: The Art of Tea

Tactile Arts Contemporary Craft Studios & Gallery
19 Conacher St., Fannie Bay, Darwin, NT
Opening 10:30 AM on Saturday, May 3rd
Runs till May 25 2014

Tactile Arts comprises dozens of talented craftspeople and artists working in glass, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, and anything else you can name, so if you love tea motifs you’re sure to find something delightful at this themed exhibition. These are what I’ve put in:

Tea in The Solarium

Tea in The SolariumMore tea, so forgive me.

In the sun-filled solarium, this time, surrounded by hothouse ferns of wild purple hue. Another tea-stained page taken from the fantastic, mostly fanciful, life of Mata Hari…and the golden walls are peppered with tiny mauve stitches…

Tea in The SolariumI scanned at higher resolutions, this time, and the file was big enough to put on throw pillows and other things, for once. Learning. It never ends.

These are available from—where else?— society6, as always, and their sales special—$5 off each item, plus free shipping worldwide—is still going. Makes me wonder if they ever turn it off. I’ve gotten so used to the great prices that I’ll probably become depressed when they finally do go back to regular pricing…

Tea for two (and free shipping on Society6 prints!)

A couple of designs on the subject of tea, in anticipation of a tea-themed Mother’s Day craft event in April. Another four designs are coming, as soon as I can get the originals scanned. I’m still pretty hopeless at this online hustling 🙂
