Tired Of Women Being Portrayed As Fragile And Delicate, Artist Helena Hauss Created A Series Of “Porcelain” Weapons

Helena Hauss is a French artist known for her incredible ballpoint pen drawings. However, a little while ago the artist decided to try out something different by creating a series of delft-style “porcelain” weapons in a project she calls Hell Hath no Fury.

In a previous interview with Bored Panda, the artist said that in the project she wanted to express some things inside her that she just couldn’t do with drawings. Helena wanted to go beyond that and felt the need to create an object that would say it all the instance you saw it, something allegoric, a visual metaphor.

French artist Helena Hauss created a series of “porcelain” weapons in a project she calls Hell Hath no Fury

Helena says the “porcelain” weapons are an “approach to represent the inner strength and fury that comes with being a woman” in contrast to the appearance of delicacy they’re 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,” explained the artist.

According to Helena, women are too often portrayed as fragile and delicate and that 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 [women].”

The artist revealed that the weapons aren’t actually made of porcelain but were instead created using polyurethane. Helena explains that not using porcelain was an artistic choice: “I wanted something strong that wouldn’t break easily, as a metaphor for its subject. Something that would look like Porcelain but actually isn’t.”

Helena says she doesn’t want her works to become political and believes that art works best when it’s done with sincerity, not with an agenta. “It’s the difference between a song written for the masses and one written from the heart: where the lyrics hit you as something you can really relate to,” further explained the artist. “That’s the human experience and in the end, it’s much more powerful than any political agenda: because that’s when we’ll all do better, when we actually truly understand each other”.

The artist explained that the “porcelain” weapons are an expression of herself and added that people are often perceived as something they’re not, and the best way to change that is to “actually show ourselves, make ourselves be seen, be heard”.

Helena plans on creating similar art in the future and is currently working on a special piece of embroidery that tackles the same kind of idea by using “both decorum and cynicism”. She added that most of her work explores the theme of irreverence and that it’s all about “challenging imposed labels and reveling in one’s own identity rather than having to apologize for it.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Artist Redefines ‘Ugly Urinals’ With His Whimsical Works Of Art (30 Pics)

Having years of experience with men’s bathrooms in various settings, this artist decided to create something beautiful and fragile from what’s commonly considered pretty nasty. Clark Sorensen is transforming ugly urinals into fancy works of art you’d probably need to have a second look at before using them for their purpose.

San Francisco-based Sorensen comes up with whimsical nature-inspired shapes of urinals and sinks that are unique as he doesn’t use molds in the process. And though they look like shiny ceramic sculptures that belong in galleries, they are totally functional for private or commercial use and many men around the world can confirm.

“I’m becoming known as the urinal man, but I’m fine with that,” Sorensen once said. His sense of humor and self-irony let him perfect his craft of combining beauty and function that some people may consider weird and explore unexpected contradictions in life.

It is a little odd to write, but please, enjoy this gallery of beautiful urinals and upvote your favorites!

“I am always thinking of better ways to make things and have done quite a bit of ceramic and porcelain work. One day, while using a urinal, I just started thinking… urinals are ceramic, the material I work in, and I just started toying with what shapes might work as a urinal. I thought of a shoe, or a mouth and landed on a flower since it is funnel-shaped. My first little exhibit had 3 flower urinals that didn’t even work because of all the cracks I had to hide, but it was a big hit so I persevered until I figured out how to make a functional urinal. It started out as kind of a joke, but people around me encouraged me to continue. It wasn’t easy to figure out a way to create these pieces, but the more successful pieces I made, the more I enjoyed transforming what many see as an ugly item into something beautiful,” the artist told Bored Panda.#2

I would love to have this designed as a hand sink.1ReplyView more comments

If you want to stand out and ensure a luxury restroom experience, you will have to spend a penny. The cost of Sorensen’s current collection of exquisite urinals ranges from $7900 to $16500 per piece, which is totally reasonable as creating a durable urinal can take up to 8 months. Most of the artist’s works are carefully designed and hand-crafted to bring a little bit of nature to your bathroom—they resemble flowers, plants, and shells. Would you like one in your own home?#4
