Add an artful twist to your daily tea respite with this ceramic teacup and saucer. They feature details from Spirals by Louise Bourgeois (French-American, 1911 - 2012).
Bourgeois was deeply influenced by her early childhood in France and by her relationship with her parents who owned a tapestry restoration business. Primarily known as a sculptor, Bourgeois's oeuvre also included painting, drawing, and printmaking. Her creative process was a way of working through the emotional turmoil of her past. The spiral appears frequently in both Bourgeois’s sculpture and her work on paper, symbolizing the duality of control and freedom as well as the cycle of life.
