20 years ago today @isabelhalleyceramics and I were waiting in the car at a tag sale when we heard the news on the radio and ran screaming to find her mother. To little girls everywhere, Diana was an object of fascination and not just because she was a princess- she projected a kind of ambition and hunger to be heard, seen and understood in her totality. I think her expression in this picture tells that story, that the tiara is not enough. Her mystique, beauty and longing made her a beautifully complex figure to adore and I wish we could have seen her next phase and heard from her about the pressures and expectations of the rigid role she was assigned. She would have enlightened us.
