The words flow from our mouths, so often without thinking. As a introvert, I find that I speak much less on most occasions than many people do and even I sometimes find myself talking without end. I am often left wondering about all the words spoken in a day. Do we speak with intention, are we communicating or just talking into the wind? If there was an envelope to contain the wasted words spoken on any given day....what might it look like?

The piece is made with two used teabags dipped in beeswax and sewn together as a pouch....filled with random words cut from an old book in my studio.

Artwork measures:
Both sides of the piece are shown as well as a detail on each side.

Please keep in mind this piece is dipped in beeswax so is delicate and will melt if left in the hot sun or next to extreme sources of heat!

Thanks for browsing MissouriBendStudio....enjoy!
