Tea Art Contest-Ended-Winners Announced
Since contests are so fun, and I have too much tea, I am holding a contest
To enter link to a picture of some tea-themed art you personally have made and which of he first 3 categories you wish to enter into. You may enter into more than one category.
Your art can be a painting, pottery, sculpture, scrap-book, knitting, metal-smith, whatever you like!
You may only submit photography as art if you explain what is pictured and why you own the picture (public property; a park). This is so that i can tell if you are submitting the shrubbery you cut into a teapot, or the picture itself.
There will be a few winners;
Smallest, how small can you go?
Largest, think big!
Utilitarian (you can use it for something functional; e.g. mug)
And the one i like best
Please submit entries by August 1, 2010
Winners will be announced after I get a chance to review all entries.
The winners will get a random selection, my choice, of at least 4 different teas, and at least 2 ounces of tea total. Please note if there are things you don’t like so I can try and avoid them (green tea, rooibos, etc) if you win.
Oh if only I was talented. I have an awesome idea, but no capability to execute it lol.
So I do photography so can I submit a photo I have taken and am proud off?
OK… I have quite a few pieces of “tea art” because, well, I’m an artist and tea is one of my favorite subjects. Here are a few of my pieces on Flickr -
These two go together (one is the front side, and one is the back side of the ATC which is 2.5 × 3.5 inches):
These two go together also:

I have a few more on my flickr.
Does poetry work?
hmmm, this time I am going to say no, i was going for more visual in this contest since there was recently a limerick contest
don’t worry I’m trying to work on another contest around words and doing creative things with words i just haven’t figured out the rules to define a winner yet!

TEA SWAPS NOTEBOOK
Another Tea Card
More coming soon…
Way to go AmazonV. Once again you’ve come up with a great idea to expand the tea experience beyond the cup.
We’re flattered. RMP is the key artist around here. Right now he is hot & heavy into the spray paint art but once school starts he has promised me a tea bowl. My own “tea” art leans to the functional side. After a laundry mishap, I made an old sweater into a tea cozy. Being wool, it works great to keep the tea hot.
Maybe this contest will motivate me to try another.
Well, I’ve got nothing new or very directly-tea-related on paper or in my mind, but I DO still want to submit something. So!
I drew this a little while ago, inspired by Leafbox Tea’s campaign to make tea Cool. It’s Doctor Who Fanart combined with Favourite Actor Fanart.
Jon Pertwee (RIP 1997; also pictured in my icon), one of my favourite all-time actors, as my favourite incarnation of the Doctor. Enjoying a wonderful cup of tea.
I’m a geek. I know.
It was originally uploaded on my DA account, but I’m always a little shy about giving that out, so it’s up on flickr instead.
I’ve been doodling with tea pictures for the last week, so this is good timing. Fun!

Mmk, I couldn’t help but try something when I saw that smallest size was a category. Just spent over an hour with tweezers, fighting static electricity and a mysterious draft I never noticed in the room to make this little guy. Not very creative, but it’s made of nothing but tea with no adhesive.
