The idea of the tea bag jiggler came to me one night when a friend was making me a cup of taa [earl grey] for the first time. I looked at the way she was jiggling the tea bag and thought the process could be automated, thus starting an obsession. I increased the absurdity of the endeavour by not stopping at just one version, instead making several variations. A theme which has carried through to my current work. I have also built two all-terrain bubble blowing vehicle and I’m now planning a third.
