Douglas Gordon | Black Spot
Black Spot Tea Set
New York, USA: Cypher Editions, 2001
Edition of 39 signed and numbered copies.
A tea set of 13 porcelain teacups and saucers, with a teapot, creamer and sugar bowl in a black linen box with satin ribbon enclosures. Part of the set is marked with the black spot at the bottom of the teacups and on some of the saucers.
A beautifully produced edition, if someone slight. It's available for $4200 CDN at Art Metropole, here.
Individual teacups were also available separately, in an edition of 666 copies (which now probably makes all involve shudder, the way people who've kept the same email address since their teens feel about having firstname.lastname@example.org as their contact info).
