Windows of the Wedding Mug Set x Faith Ringgold

Regular price $28.00 USD

This set of two complimentary mugs depicts African American artist Faith Ringgold's works Windows of the Wedding #1: Woman (1974) and Windows of the Wedding #2: Breakfast in Bed (1974).

Faith Ringgold's paintings shifted in the 1970s from traditional oils to her first un-stretched works bordered with pieced fabric.

The Window of the Wedding series is one of her earliest un-stretched fabric paintings, inspired by Tibetan Buddhist thangkas, paintings on silk and hung from wood dowels, that she encountered on a visit to Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in the summer of 1972.

The abstract works were done in collaboration with her mother, Willi Posey, a fashion designer.

Created in fine bone china, these are delicate in touch and feel, a perfectly personal indulgence or a beautiful gift. 

About the Artist

Artist, author, educator, and organizer, Faith Ringgold (b. 1930, New York, NY) is one of the most influential cultural figures of her generation, with a career linking the multi-disciplinary practices of the Harlem Renaissance to the political art of young Black artists working today. For sixty years, Ringgold has drawn from both personal autobiography and collective histories to both document her life as an artist and mother and to amplify the struggles for social justice and equity. From creating some of the most indelible artworks of the civil rights era to challenging accepted hierarchies of art versus craft through her experimental story quilts, Faith Ringgold has produced a body of work that bears witness to the complexity of the American experience.
