Artist Grayson Perry has been constructing a cottage of sorts in Essex. If you are not familiar with his work he is a decorative vessel maker that uses imagery on his pots to comment on social mores and cultural issues surrounding gender and sex, primarily. For his current project he has become designer and architect, constructing a gaudy work of art covered in green and white ceramic tile and laced with the history of odd narrative surrounding a fictional woman whom the house was styled. The project has been getting mixed reviews from the locals and local government. Have a look. There is a video of Perry speaking about his work on the site, and don't forget to say hello to Claire for me.
