The Philosopher by David Shrigley

Third Drawer Down

Details

The Philosopher will hold your plants, your flowers, your soup or your kitchen utensils, but not your hand - he's just a ceramic head after all. What an exciting place David Shrigley's brain is to dream up this planter for an exhibition - now lovingly adapted so you too can take the Philosopher home!

About the Artist

Third Drawer Down Studio first collaborated with British artist David Shrigley in 2007. Shrigley came into prominence through his drawings, publications and sculptural works. His drawings have a kind of throwaway beauty featuring monster children, idiots, aliens and bad parents. Full of twisted lists and exchanges, Shrigley is a Third Drawer Down favourite both for his angst about modern living, his everyday disappointments and his endless cynicism.
