The Seventh Cup : Cat Simpson. Septemer 20 - October 8, 2005

Tea, often the nucleus of many a meeting, has been whirling a long time at the heart of many worlds. As gatherer, door opener and flight coordinator, Tea and its varying drinking customs and rituals are an indispensable part of life in many cultures. Cat returned to Christchurch earlier this year, after a long wander through lands full of green leaf. In places where Tea spins at the centre, one can't help but disappear into the magic. Emerging out of conversations with Tea, meetings with people, continual burning and joyous madness, comes the seventh cup.
