New to Me: Miniature Paintings on Tea Bags by Ruby Silvious

Arts & Crafts, Design & Designers

Artist and graphic designer Ruby Silvious paints true miniature art, for she makes used tea bags(!) into her canvas. The results – many of which depict everyday scenes and objects – are delicate and distinctive.

Below are just three of my favorites. My goodness, it was hard to choose just three!

At this writing, Silvious’s Tea Bag Art series includes five subsets: 26 Days of Tea first in Japan and then in France, 52 Weeks of Tea, 363 Days of Tea and a Teabag Mini-book. She has also published her 363 days paintings as a book.

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
