This pig-skull teapot has two sides, with and without muskrat fur. The glaring contrast between the inanimate and the animal propels “High Tea Pot”, 2003, from the world of bourgeois ritual to that of bizarre fantasy, harking back to the disturbing strangeness sought by surrealists and, in particular, Victor Brauner’s “Loup-Table”, 1937-1947, in which the dining room fixture takes on the appearance of a ferocious, hungry wolf.
