“Cultural Habits”, 18 in. ceramic raku container.
Watching a staggering crowd of women awkwardly parading around in the latest fashion of 6 inch stiletto heels reminds me of this ceramic piece I made after our trip to Thailand. The Paduang Hill tribe women wear brass rings to elongate their necks, a custom that promises more sex appeal. Amazing how societies cling to cultural beauty habits, no matter their health risks.
