Caroline Herschel Tea Towel x Judy Chicago
Third Drawer Down In collaboration with Judy Chicago, Third Drawer Down presents the Caroline Herschel Linen Tea Towel, adapted from one of the place settings in Chicago's famous The Dinner Party. Caroline Herschel was an astronomer, who discovered several comets, one of which bears her name.
The Dinner Party was a milestone artwork for Chicago's career and 1970s feminist art in general. The settings on The Dinner Party's triangular form consisted of embroidered runners, gold chalices and utensils, and china-plated porcelain plates. The plates featured raised motifs based on vulvar and butterfly forms unique to the woman being honoured.
