Sovereign-tea, 2022 Clay slip and sgraffito Concept, Tania Willard vessel made by Brooke Waldron, Grayhorse Native Art and Ceramics
The Sovereign-tea service is an affirming of plant relations and an assertion of anti-capitalist time mismanagement expressed through Indigenous plant knowledges and the making of tea.
The piece was developed as site responsive to both my home territory of Secwepémcul’ecw and to the Stockbridge Munsee Mohican tribe territories. The rosehips in the tea were harvested with prayer and offering from plants in Secwepemc territory at BUSH gallery and the elderberry and wild grape leaf are informed by the research of Misty Cook (Davids), Mohican herbalist.
