TV Dinner

Jackie Andrews is a fiber artist and jeweler based in Baltimore, MD.

Her piece “TV Dinner” is comprised of vintage silverware and platter, 1950s celluloid food, embroidery thread, and vitreous enamel on copper. It was inspired by 1950s food advertisements, and is meant to be a modern symbol/icon of the often oppressive constraints of gender roles and life as a housewife in the 1950s.
