Teabag Burnt Bowl

Having to finish off things to a deadline certainly helps with getting projects finished. To submit the finished piece I had to complete burning this bowl made from tealeaves. I was burning between the stitching with incense sticks which gave a lovely organic edge but i had to resort to using a soldering iron to get it finished. Where there is more than one layer of teabag and I had left some of the glue from the dissolvable in the structure for stability, it was hard work getting the incense sticks to stay lit. I was quite pleased with the end result but I did dip it in Powertex to increase the rigidity of the finished piece
