Potter Grayson Perry and ceramist Jeff Koons


Post by Jack Regalado

[Ed. note. See Jan. 19 post for more on Grayson Perry] Although his transvestism seems calculated to get attention, and to my mind is both counterproductive and irrelevant, Grayson Perry’s work appears to be earnest and honest.

That does not, however, necessarily translate into artistic merit.

I have rather more respect for Perry’s pots than for the ceramics of Jeff Koons. (image is Koons’s ceramic “Michael Jackson and Bubbles,” 1988)
