An Installation Of Three Thousand Painted Teabags

An Installation Of Three Thousand Painted Teabags

I love me some tea, guys. It was no surprise that I instantly fell in love with a simple and elegant installation that featured three thousand teabags strung together after steeping in paint. The piece is called Tea Sunburst and is hidden in the back of a little store in town called Rolling Greens. We didn’t count how many teabags there actually are but we do not doubt that it reaches many thousand bags, drifting from yellow to red to pink to brown and back again. It’s a very patient piece that makes you wish you had the time and energy to create your own version of it yourself.

You can check out more photos and information on the piece here.

    Gives teabagging a whole new meaning!

    This carries a lot of poetry, both esthetically and because tea is often associated with moments of serenity. I like this installation very much.

    What fun!! I’m a tea lover, too, now I’ll look at my used teas bags in a whole new light. I bet the art piece smells good too. Wouldn’t that be neat as a window treatment?
