Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry shows a selection of his pots at Tate St Ives, as well as a ‘coming out ‘ frock designed by the artist. Perry’s work combines the traditions of fine and decorative arts including drawing, embroidery and ceramics, to explore compelling personal and social themes. His classical pots are covered with imagery which, although colourful and decorative, are in fact often autobiographical images of himself and his transvestite alter ego Claire, and include references to political events and an investigation of cultural stereotypes.
