British Designer Launches Terrorist Tea Pot
As far as weird and wacky goes this story really does take the biscuit…
A British designer has devised a tea pot that is made to look like a terrorist, in order to poke fun at the well-known British pass time of making tea.
The Terrorist Tea Pot, created by Jackie Pipier for SUCK UK, is a wry piece of ‘art’ to build juxtaposition between the terror image and the traditional sweet, flowery, prim tea pot.
Making cups of tea is often a concept made fun of for Brits as it is widely associated with us, with some websites explaining the best way to brew a ‘proper British cuppa.’
And it doesn’t help that there is even a United Kingdom Tea Council; stating that so far this year since Jan 1st 2011, there has been 69,000,000 cups of tea consumed in the UK.
The designer is also a part of the Design Against Crime program at the University of the Arts, in London.
Alongside the tea pot, the designer has taken a stab at the warm and fuzzy British tea cosy with a terrorist balaclava tea cosy.
Maybe a terrorist tea cosy isn’t quite the appropriate present for your gran for her 80th birthday this year!
Fun and quirky Tea Cosies can still be bought to suit every taste but with perhaps a more pleasant style, at Ulster Weavers.
