Storm Brewing alludes to common notions of Britishness, such as umbrellas and the rain or tea drinking but it also alludes to both an intimate and immense space; we can read both puddle and sea in one space. The tea cup sinks in the clear resin up to the rim of the cup; there remains a tension between submergence and buoyancy. The dynamic configuration of the umbrella and teacup implies that at any point the cup may be launched out of the umbrella. Comparisons could be made to Britain's current financial and political situation.
