"I was originally going to make it like ”you’ve moulded me into who I am today” but that's like saying that they actually impacted, so then it became the entire opposite like of not being clay and not having any impact from other people". (Interview at the Perfectly Imperfect Launch Party 5-Dec-2016)

Grace loves “Clay” but don’t like singing it any more, She compares it to an artist’s relations to her first painting, “they were good, but you have improved and maybe discovered your style more, with your more recent paintings, my new paintings are more my style now, I am not embarrassed by the old ones, because they brought me to where I am, but I use different colours now, I use different methods now” (Grace on an IG live from home 20-Mar-2020)
