Armenian artist Armén Rotch [2] has created an amazing series of artworks by arranging used tea bags into intricate patterns. While others may use the bags to help tired eyes or compost the contents in their garden, Rotch re-appropriates the tea bags creatively, giving them a stunning new purpose.

Armén Rotch’s huge tea bag collages are formed using bags that have been left to steep for different amounts of time – a process that builds layers of tonal variation within the installation pieces. In the past we took a look at sculptures created from recycled teabag wrappers [3], so just imagine how many pots of tea were made to create all this artwork!
