Grayson Perry's ceramic vases and pots combine a variety of decorative techniques to address issues of identity, class, sexuality and gender. They often present a sharply satirical view of society and, in particular, the art world. Aspects of Myself is an autobiographical work showing the artist in the guise of his transvestite alter-ego 'Claire'. Perry''s visually and thematically complex work challenges the traditional division between fine art and the applied arts.
