Susanne Ussing

Susanne Ussing was a danish ceramist, architect and painter who had a lot to say about impermanence, scale and women's issues.This piece is so engaging. The kneeling pose coupled with the tightness of the proportions...such a humble openness in the figure but so clearly contained in a way that constricts and confines.

More info about Susanne here (you'll need to translate the page though!)
