Tea Ceremony

I had a residency in Beijing and began photographing and drawing hands, it was also a good way to meet people. A friend had written out in Mandarin what I was asking and people were very obliging.

But I became fascinated by the tea ceremonies that I was given, the attention paid to different teas, and the way of preparing and drinking them.I began making large tea prints using different tea leaf and food stuffs of my journeys, pomegranate, orange, persimmon allowing them to sit and make their singular marks as they dried.
