Russian artist and tea lover Marina Malinovaya arrange flowers and leaves in a whimsical way. Malinovaya creates her poetic Floral Tea Story photography series using only plants, a tea set, and a tabletop, she cleverly creates the illusion of cups overflowing with flora. At first glance, it looks like she’s holding them upright, the vessels are actually toppled over onto the table.
Each fanciful photograph features the artist’s hand clutching the handle of a teacup, teapot, or mug. She cleverly arranges everything to form swirling formations, making colorful floral bunches look like either rising steam or tongue-tickling savory liquid. Due to their clever placement and swirling formation, the botanical bunches look like stylized steam rising from each warm cup of tea.
