Fusion tea

Category: Traditional


I’ve tried to made traditional in a sense fascinator, depicting my favourite british tradition such as afternoon tea , but with a twist . Flowers always looks good in a tea cup whatever it’s areangements or floral tea . My flowers made from super light clay new material I have discovered same time as I have discovered millinery (just over 2 years ago) . Clay is fun to work with and have endless possibilities. Here we have fusion of new and traditional materials ( sinamay and clay ) and fusion of flowers and tea ceremony .


  • Sinamay
  • lace
  • Japanese super lightweight modelling clay
  • feather butterflies
  • ribbons
  • wire


  • Blocking ( tea cup)
  • sewing
  • flower sculpting from clay
