NECESSITY IS INDEED THE MOTHER OF INVENTION

When you think “Inventor” do you see a little old man with glasses wearing a white lab coat?  Probably.  In many cases, you would be mistaken.

Many women are responsible for creating an abundance of items we use every day and sometimes take for granted.  And often, it was the curiosity of a women’s mind trying to solve a problem that led to new and wondrous products.

Artist, Kristine Albrecht has explored the roles of women in society through watercolor paintings and clay for the past two decades. She addresses issues facing both women of the day and women of her mother’s
generation. In 2013, she began her current series in clay which illuminates individual women inventors and pioneers whose stories are little known or have been forgotten. Through her research, she found that rarely were the contributions of women acknowledged in the same way as their male counterparts and that women struggled for their ideas to be heard.
