The humble tea towel is one of Third Drawer Down's signature artist products. A practical and fun way to dry the dishes, it can also be stretched onto a canvas at your local framer and double up as an affordable artwork for your home.
Third Drawer Down Studio has re-released the Virtues Theologales tea towel in collaboration with The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and Louise Bourgeois' studio, The Easton Foundation. The artwork is screen printed onto linen and also features stunning embroidery. Roughly translated, the petals read: "Loves me, loves me not (passionately, crazily, not at all, with love, a little, a lot..." )
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.
