''The Grayson Perry'' ''I think the artists who will go down in history are the ones who in some way respond to the moment they're in''

Potter Artist Grayson Perry (British: 1960) | Grayson Perry afforded us the rare opportunity of a visit to his studio in Walthamstow, north-east London. Describing pottery as his gimmick, Perry goes on to show us his process before explaining why he wants people to be able to just enjoy art, rather than having to interpret it.

Grayson Perry studio visit. I am so happy someone else feels like that when they open the kiln! (especially someone so famous)

Grayson Perry! I used to make things like this. I called them visual poems. I call a lot of my work visual poems, coming from a lit background, wondering when I will start looking at what I do as art maybe!

always wanted a studio like this, in NY of course. After all morning working I will walk to Central Park for lunch

Grayson Perry: "I love fakes for they make us think about what it is we see in the authentic. About how much of our awe in front of a great historical artefact is in its inherent beauty and how much is to do with its auspicious provenance."

This has the preciousness of a well-traveled Russian antique. Glazed in golds, silvers and whites, Perry’s urn tells a Gothic tale of a child’s death in a gloomy small town. The image is timeless: it could be yesterday or eighty years ago; but almost certainly it has to be Eastern European – nowhere else could such horrific grief be met with such fairy-tale romanticism.
