Helena Hauss / Sculptures

A Series of custom made sculptures hand painted in the delft blue style of ceramics. An approach to represent the inner strength and fury that comes with being a woman, in contrast to an appearance of delicacy we’re too often branded with.
Women have always been construed as the “weaker sex” and are constantly being preyed on, or diminished in some way or another.
Too often portrayed as fragile and delicate, this project is an expression of the contrasting subtleties that come with femininity, as well as an attempt at vindication from a feeling of constant vulnerability that’s been forced upon us.
It’s about inner strength, fury and empowerment.
As a way to say : contrary to what you might think; we’re not made of glass, porcelain or crystal, we’re not gonna break, we’re wearing full metal jackets, and we’re ready to fight back.”
