  • Catalogue Essay

    Anyone who peers at the dark autobiographical drawings incised into Grayson Perry's pots knows two key facts about him: that he is a transvestite and that he had an unhappy childhood...[his pots] explain how they are connected – how, as a child living in fear of his stepfather, he retreated into an elaborate fantasy world...Pottery suited him at first because he liked the craft element, its aura of domescticity, femininity, earthiness, and also its underdog status, the fact that it is about as unfashionable in the artworld as any medium could be.L. Barber, ‘Grayson Perry: The Interview' in TheObserver, 8 January, 2006
