Jacky Klein, Grayson Perry, London 2009, p. 235, illustrated in colour
"The images on this pot are mainly made up from sexual fantasies: pictures of women bound and gagged, dumped in stinging-nettle-filled ditches, a sort of suburban sex-fetish hell." (the artist cited in: Jacky Klein, Grayson Perry, London 2009, p. 235)
The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is brighter and more vibrant in the original.
