The artist created this out of love. He says,
The Gribsby Plate is not an anti-establishment gesture. It is an expression of my belief that the way ahead for humanity lies in the loving marriage of the male and female energies. The British monarchy is a focus of joy and love for the whole world, and a Royal wedding is a time for us to experience that joy in an excitingly erotic way.
Of course the plate is irreverent, in the best best British tradition. This is why I have called it an 'anal-ternative' souvenir. Laughter is essential to emotional balance. But my irreverence is underpinned by a profound belief in the orderliness of life and a respect for marriage as an ancient sacrament.
My congratulations go to beautiful Wills and Kate, together with my sincere wish that they find lasting pleasure and nurture in each other’s bodies.
I might consider getting one if I had eighty pounds to spare.
