An introduction by Anja Franke:
"WASTE SERVICE TEA BAR consists of 200 kg of old porcelain that has been thrown away. IHi (InstantHERLEV institute) collected the porcelain and painted it with a special WASTE TIME pattern. IHi shows people how to paint the pattern and invites everybody in to have a cup of tea. When painting the pattern, you waste time. Therefore the pattern painted on the tea cups is not only a decoration, but also a symbol of wasting time. IHi's vision is to open up the intimate situation of drinking tea together and create a global tea dining ware where everybody can participate and people can meet and talk to strangers over a cup of tea. When you decorate a tea cup you develop your own personal way of making the pattern and thereby put your mark on the global dining ware."
