We are destroying the future.
We are stealing civilization's greatest hope.
Every minute a child is enlisted for war.
They enter it as if it were a game,
but little do they know that this game
never comes out the way it entered.
Mutilated, raped, gagged, kidnapped.
Their innocence is lost
at the same time as the reason for living.
The "Children Stolen" collection
portrays through the ceramics this drama
experienced by our children around the world.
There are 15 million living this reality.
Of all races, of all beliefs.
A collection of 15 children in ceramics
that brings the tears of the world together
and turns them into silent cries for help,
in supplication for a world of peace.
