Tea Towels, Third Drawer Down®: A Piece of Tea (2005)

A few people have emailed us about Third Drawer Down®, and pretty much the only reason there hasn’t been a post until now is because it’s difficult to choose just one to highlight. They have made common objects such as aprons, tea towels and kercheifs into usable art and I know there’s quite a few I would frame. Also, keep in mind these would be excellent gifts for anyone who has a kitchen (which is almost everyone).

“By placing art into the most domestic of circumstances, Third Drawer Down® products promote an ongoing dialogue between art and everyday life, whilst promoting the work of International Artists and Designers.”

I’m not a huge candle-fan, but I like the idea of fire and ice used together. You fill the mould with water and let it freeze, then you light the candle and as the ice melts, it drains neatly back into the mould.
