Mandala Series

“Spirituality can be practised while doing simple everyday things like drinking your cup of Tea.”
- Thich Nhat Hanh.

While in London I came across a variety of different herbal teas and hence varied coloured tea bags. Tints and shades of greens, pinks, oranges, pale whites unlike only the sepia ones I had previously been used to. Transferring the tea bags onto fusion fabric via heat transfer and then using an incense stick to burn off the visible fusion, filling in metallic paint and hand stitching. Influenced by The Buddhist concept of Mandalas I created this body of work.
