I totally get that with the teabags! For the past year I have been saving my teabags (nothing very exotic -- maybe Lipton's?) and putting them on the outside window sill to dry. In the Saudi sun, they crisp up nicely. Then I cut and unfold them with some vague notion of turning them into pages for little books. I use two massive teacher's guide to literature textbooks to press them -- nothing like a bit of osmosis to inform a future project! Sculpture, though, sounds intriguing...I always learn of a new way of looking at things from your blog, Heather. Many thanks!
