The Long Awaited Tea Project Video!

Tea Collection Project from Sam Lee on Vimeo.

There it is! For everyone who has seen my kitchen and wondered why it is sticky this video will reveal all. Here is the final presentation of my collections project in Foundation in Studio Arts II. For the project I collected tea for 30 days then turned it unto syrup to be mixed with milk paint. Later I shattered the cups in my kitchen, which had less to do with collections and more to do with my unexplainable desire to smash ceramics.

In the end a lot of things went wrong. The tea became moldy faster than expected. The syrup was either too runny or too hard or to sparse. The milk paint was lumpy and didn’t dry like normal paint. Despite all this I felt the final installation made quite an impression and looked a lot more polished than some of my classmates pieces. I received and A for the piece.
