Grayson Perry is an English artist, known mainly for his ceramic vases and cross-dressing. Perry's vases have classical forms and are decorated in bright colours, depicting subjects at odds with their attractive appearance. There is a strong autobiographical element in his work, in which images of Perry as 'Claire', his female alter-ego, often appear. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2003.

In this film, we visit the artist's studio. 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.
