Ornament by David Shrigley cat soft toy
Neither use nor ornament soft toy is a blue cat designed by David Shrigley and produced in collaboration with Third Drawer Down. This design is based on works that the artist originally made as foam-stuffed canvas sculptures, adapted with his words.
David Shrigley was born in Macclesfield and studied environmental art at Glasgow School of Art. After graduating he began publishing books of quirky, doodle-like drawings. As well as drawing incessantly, he photographs, makes sculptures and performs 'public interventions' which he then photographs for display. His artwork is part of the National Galleries of Scotland Collection and can be viewed online.
Third Drawer Down is and Australian brand that has collaborated with contemporary artists, transforming their works into original gifts and homeware products with an uncompromising dedication to artistic integrity, functionality and accessibility.
