How I Thought of Myself, 2000

Turner Prize winning Grayson Perry works in a variety of mediums but is best known as a ceramicist. His pots use imagery and text to chronicle social concerns, Perry’s own formative experiences and to tell the story of his alter ego, Claire. The tone of his narratives is psychologically complex and often caustic. Although he uses traditional methods to make his pots, he uses a range of techniques, such as embossing and photographic transfers, to create intricate, animated surfaces.
