Porcelain Weapons – Metaphor to ‘What it Means to Be a Woman” by Helena Hauss

Artist born, raised and living in Paris is destined to do great in art. Helena Hauss is just that. 29-year-old has the heart of a warrior as many women do and she’s fighting ‘the battle’ the best way she knows. Her goal is to show the world and the ignorant ones what it means to be a woman. ‘Hell Hath no Fury’ is the name of her porcelain project you can see below and Helena shared the story behind its art in an inspiring interview with bored panda. “It’s 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 repeatedly been construed as the “weaker sex” and are regularly 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. The ‘ceramic’ weapons are a symbol of ‘inner strength, fury, and empowerment’. The brilliant lady spoke great wisdom to complete her art as a true inspiration that strikes deep to the core that can bring change. “We’re too often perceived as something we’re not, and the best way to change that is to actually show ourselves, make ourselves be seen, be heard”.
