Tasseography is the divination or art of telling fortunes by interpreting the symbols in tea leaves and coffee grounds. This piece is inspired by this art that has been handed down through the Armenian women of my family. The illustration shows the coffee plant growing out of the sleeves of the hands holding the cup with a top border of oriental poppies.

I foresee…

A world without borders.
The end of capitalism.
Decolonization and Self-Determination.
The return of the trees, salmon, wolves and bees.
The smashing of the patriarchy.
Justice for our communities.
Reproductive rights for all.
Queer liberation.

Some of you were curious about the honey process

Well, I’m here to show you what these wonderful little ladies make, and how us humans collect the extra.

Some Vocabulary:

This is a Langstroth beehive. Those boxes in it are called “Supers”. Supers hold 10 frames each. Frames look like this.

I’m here to teach you about honey extraction from this particular kind of hive, and when you only have like 5 or 6.

The Process:

First, we start with the frame of honey.

Notice anything? The bees have “capped” this honey with beeswax so it can keep for the winter! (or beekeep heheh)

So what you wanna do is cut those bad boys off with ya Hot Knife.

(Or you can just scrape them off with a fork. Or poke holes in them. Dealer’s choice, man.)

Next, you put your uncapped frames in the Crazy Spin Cylinder. (The Extractor)

And YA CRANK IT

And the honey sp i n s

Honey GO

H O N  E  Y


The frames are spun at such a high speed that the honey is pulled right out!

Next, you open the spigot at the bottom, run it through a strainer…

Pour it in a jar…

and VOILA!

Beautiful Bee Nectar that you got yaself! This has been a PSA

We have bees on our farm. Right now we have 400 gallons with 10,000 bees per gallon. They are leafcutter bees, not honey bees–All bees matter!–

These bees don’t sting. They pollinate. 

They will land on you, buzz around and mind their own business. In my three+ years of owning them I was stung once, and I must admit, It was my fault. 

We also sell them on a smaller scale for people to put in their backyards. They always return home and lay eggs (so you could keep going with them as long as you care for them) Basically Doubling your population each time.

If anyone is interested in backyard bees send me a message and I’ll describe how the process works! And if you are interested in buying we can work something out!

Please Reblog and share. 

Don’t just say “save the bees!” 

Do it.
