Grayson Perry

Grayson Perry is a unique character, this doll is my homage to this amazing artist. I have used as a starting point an outfit that


wore to the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition preview party 2008 and


motor bike leathers leathers based on the Cerne Abbis Giant.

This cloth and clay doll is 45cm or roughly 18" in length, the doll is made of calico, paperclay and acrylic paint. I'm not very good with a camera so I hope these photo's do it justice

I hope that you are intrigued enough to look up Grayson Perry......... His work is amazing.
