"Ritual Cloth X"

6"x61/2",  tea bags, hand carved stamp, machine and hand stitching and small black beads. First time to use tea bags as cloth and I do like the beautiful stains. I'm trying to change things up a little...using new materials to me and keeping small. Cloth doesn't hold up well in antiquity so the museum sites I have visited have few textiles from ancient middle east...mostly burial cloths.
Out of my six suggestions, I will probably complete three more before I decide on a new series. I'm already enamored with 'amulets' but I might change my mind before I finish the next three.


  1. I think this is just stunning, I love the stamp, the color... well, everything, it looks ancient and you know that I adore crumbling splendor, you have achieved it!

    1. Caterina, Thank you. These fragile tea bags became fragile and then the ancient crumbling thing happened! I've enjoyed the challenge.
