West Coast artist Laura Ann Jacobs [1] is known for her ornate sculptural pieces that use recycled materials to create tongue-in-cheek commentary on how the concepts of fashion and “beauty” shape our bodies and minds. One of her latest pieces, seen here, is made of an old lobster shell, which has been reshaped to look like a bra. The artist’s one-of-a-kind creations incorporate elements from women’s garments and accessories, which she finds to be restrictive and sometimes preposterous.
