the tomb of the unknown craftsman - grayson perry, 2011 [british museum exhibition intro + video]

Rosetta Vase from Grayson Perry's exhibition at the British Museum. His pots are an odd mixture of graphic art and ceramic, with social commentary.

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."

GRAYSON PERRY - creating ceramic urns to present his art is definitely individual
