Filii Fragiles
Filii Fragiles

This porcelain sculpture, derived from infant and children’s clothing speaks to the innocence and fragility of children. While children are indeed resilient, their resilience has been assailed over recent months and years in numerous ways. Fragility and resilience are a continuum, and some children, dependent on their individual and collective circumstances are more vulnerable, therefore fragile than others.
