without words, the sound of the kettle going on the boil is an invitation to talk, to connect with another person. it is a reassuring sound that within minutes leads to a cup of tea.

i wonder if it is the most frequently asked question in ireland “would you like a cup of tea?”. it is sometimes hard to believe tea is native to asia, it is so deeply rooted in the irish psyche.

my linoprint depicts a striped cup, this was my grandmother’s striped cup.

i am reminded of tea leaves being spooned from an old tin box and into a waiting tea-pot. once stewed, for just the right amount of time, the tea would be poured into this cup.

perfect every time.

what i wouldn’t give for a cup of tea and a chance to talk to my grandmother again.
