- Since winning the Turner Prize in 2003, Grayson Perry has become known as the nation's favourite transvestite potter. In this film, he speaks engagingly about why he is an artist who uses ceramics and not a potter, and about the defining and often dark, disturbing themes that run through his work. He explains the elaborate, labour-intensive processes involved in his creations and how he typically uses a range of different techniques. Beauty and sensual overload are of great importance to his practice, alongside the edgy undermining of our expectations of what pottery is and can be.The 2006 exhibition The Charms of Lincolnshire was an interesting departure for him, in which his own works were integrated amongst Victorian artefacts from the archives of Lincolnshire museums. The aim, he explains, was to create an atmosphere both macabre and exotic. Perry speaks about new work he has made for his 2007 show in Japan and how he has branched out from just making pots, though he is sure they will always remain an essential element of his artistic output. Please note that this DVD contains some explicit images and adult text.
