Another contribution from a reader. May von Krogh is a Norwegian sculptor of ceramic installations. A recent submission featured what has been called “children in peril”. It is not as one might assume about child abuse per se but the anxieties and traumas associated with being a child. The emotions are subtle and in some cases only apparent upon close examination. Funnily enough the pieces were inspired by a simple nursery rhyme: Mary Had a Little Lamb. The lamb is not only an important of symbol of innocence but of Christianity as well and the artist discusses a personal memory about her faith.
