Start your day like Louise would with lots of tea and jam and sugar and caffeine (according to her long-time assistant and friend, Jerry Gorovoy).
The imagery featured on this tea set is from Louise's fabric book, Ode À La Bièvre, featuring collages made from fragments of her old clothing and household items. This porcelain tea pot, tea cup and saucer comes gift-boxed and are a tea drinkers ultimate companion.
About the Artist
Louise Bourgeois was a French-born American artist who used her art to work through her experiences and seek calm and strength. She once said, “To give meaning and shape to frustration and suffering. The existence of pain cannot be denied. I propose no remedies or excuses.” Her interior life was often the basis of her work. The feelings she tapped into were universal yet complex and affecting. Third Drawer Down first collaborated with her in 2008 for a retrospective at the Tate Museum. We have continued an on-going relationship with her trust, The Easton Foundation, to produce a series of objects inspired by her work available here.
