Tea Bunnies: A work in progress
It’s nice to remind ourselves how lucky we are from time to time.? On my birthday (August the 1st) I was taken out for the day by my handsome partner in crime and we strolled along a beach that I had not been to before and found a gorgeous little tea shop full of vintage cups and saucers and offering a full array of herbal teas *heaven*.? It’s times like this I smile and realise how happy I am.? It’s also times like this I am inspired to create and it just so happened that inspiration hit me with a pot of tea in front of me.
This is how my seed of thought evolved…
The Tea Bunnies!? This idea jumped in to my mind as I was describing myself as a tea bunny (I have no idea where that saying comes from) and I wondered what a tea bunny might actually look like.? I doodled and sketched until I had what I wanted.? Sculpted it into a 3D form and started casting today.? I have also been hand sewing fabric tea bags for them to go inside (complete with illustrated tea tags).
Mint will be the first release later this week.? There will be a release of 20 signed pieces and 4 matryoshka sets (these have 3 bunnies in 3 different sizes inside the teabags).
As you can see the minty shades vary as I am mixing the pigments as I go, so each batch is slightly different, but I think that adds to their individuality.? They also have little bums!? I couldn’t resist, they’re so cute.? And the biggest ones have freckly noses.? You can see them there, in the last photo, just after their bath.
I will show you the finished photos plus a shop link as soon as these are released.
