Do you remember this quirky teapot? James Ward's creates whimsical illustrations usually depicting animals centered around eating or asking politely for your food. His anthropomorphic characters are presented in a way so we humans can identify with them focusing on the idea as "if they’re communicating and taking part in our lives. For example, sitting on the couch, eating cake in your pants may be something I do, but it would be nice to think that all animals could do that."
He puts these illustrations on ceramic stacking cups (among other things) creating irresistibly cool products. The stacking cups come in set of two and sometimes more forming a complete animal on being stacked together or to make an animal tree with multiple animals. Available here and here.
