37. Tea Time Skull


Tea leaves arranged with a chopstick. Reading an article about tea this morning inspired today's skull. I love tea (and yes these leaves will get used to make a lovely cup of skull tea, they're Fair Trade Organic English Breakfast if you're wondering).

p.s. Hello to the new readers who discovered this site through Make/Craft!

WOW, what you're doing is really cool, and a great way to kick start some creative motivation. Now I'm looking around my office and trying to figure out what I can turn into a skull...uh-oh, I think I scared the dog...

Well, since you said hello, I will too. Hello! I found you on Craft. Now I have you linked on my blog so I can check out the new skull every day!

It's really cool that this idea prompts us to look for skulls in our environment, prompts us to come up with our own daily what-ever, and for me, makes me look forward to the next installment...

Noah -

(sorry, couldn't resist)

English Breakfast! Good call a nice robust BLACK tea specially blended to go with milk and sugar.

I know a bookstore up in DC where you can get some sugar to go with that tea.

All you need now is some skull non-dairy creamer.

LLLove your project!! Heard about you through Craft - thanks, Craft!

You might be interested to see this origami version. I saw it in person at an origami conference in San Francisco in 1997. It's tricky to describe but this page does pretty well:

Finally, a way to combine my tea and skull addictions. Excellent!

Great concept. I've been collecting (but not creating) skulls for a little while: Astroboy, Pac-Man, a skull motorcycle helmet, etc. But your project is so much more encompassing. Nicely done!
