Love It or Hate It? Wieki Somers High Tea Pot

This tea pot, from artist Wieki Somers (no price available), has a skull-like shape made, appropriately enough, from bone china. The water rat fur cozy keeps the tea warm, and the bone china is thin enough to view the water level through the curves of the skull shape. In her artist's statement, Wieki writes, "Nothing is more decadent than to satisfy the human need for status and extravagance through the harm of animals."

I think this piece makes a compelling argument against animal cruelty. But judging it purely from an aesthetic point of view, what do you think?

Is the artist actually advocating violence to animals as a means to an end? Or is her comment meant to be ironic? The fur covered cozy is derivative and was done by Meret Oppenheim - her fur covered cup, saucer and spoon were original and provocative and I believe are part of the permanent collection at MOMA in NYC. Also reminds me of Damien Hirst's work - Nothing new here.

It's not something I would serve my Grandmother tea from, but I have the kind of friends who would get a big a kick out of it as I would.
