Toiling and Coiling

A very welcome cool rain today was the perfect backdrop for studio work. I was away most of the past week, so was especially happy to be back to my tea bags. The large piece, really resembling a quilt in many ways, is almost finished (rather "tea"dious after a while)....just the edges left to complete. This photo was taken a couple of days ago, before it got to today's stage:

I've also been playing with making some 3 dimensional pieces. For now I've been experimenting with wrapping the tea bags around rope or upholstery cording. The idea is to create something made of long coils, perhaps a vessel. Here is a tea bag bracelet and a wrapped coil I've started. The jury is out on this one!
