Today's post is on one of my favourite things
A cup of tea. I've often thought that if I made a map of where I walk in the kitchen as I make a cup of tea that the path I move across the floor and trace through the air with the teaspoon as I put the tea in the pot would move in exactly the same line through the air every day. Making tea is the most prosaic of rituals and that's why I believe it is so comforting.
Bethan Laura Wood from the UK has encapsulated the gradual, slow comfort of tea drinking in her "Stain"cups. Through use they reveal their essential place in the tea drinkers life. The act of drinking deepening their connection with both the artist and the ritual.
