The work consists of a ceramic vessel along with supporting material. The vessel depicts an alternative vision to the rural idyll and was made for the Charms of Lincolnshire exhibition curated by Perry in 2006. Perry described the work by saying 'often our vision of rural life is mired in the pre-industrial age. The Victorian era is a popular setting for sexual fantasies as well. The snapshots show typical rural sights today.'
