Female Masturbation

Series of brooches, 2019
Woos, silver, steel, aluminum

‘Female Masturbation’, much like female sexual pleasure, is almost never talked about and thus, never romanticized. In this series of aluminum and hand-painted wood brooches, I want to show the beauty behind the ‘unthinkable act’. Three female figures overflowing with little hearts and flowers, like cartoon characters falling in love – in this case, they fall in love with themselves.
