Séance for a Suffragist
This porcelain tea service was designed to summon the spirit of the badass activist and politician Victoria Woodhull. Each piece is handpainted with underglaze; the imagery includes references to Ouija and the tarot, a list of Woodhull's accomplishments, and a portrait of our heroine herself. The tea pot is also stamped with a quote from Woodhull: "Yes, I am a free lover. I have an inalienable, constitutional and natural right to love whom I may; to love as long or short a period as I can; to change that love every day if I please."
