Many people take great comfort in discovering hidden treasures in case within pouches and containers. My collection of objects represent the set of curated mysteries that act as talismans of self control.
My pieces could also be seen as a paradox of temptation due to the suggestive shapes reminiscent of inflated bags. When buying trading cards or Kinder eggs, the feeling of reward resides in the split second of opening the packaging and thus solving the mystery.
Through my work I used the timeless nature of porcelain and combine it with the tempting aspect of inflated foil pouches, to create a luxury mystery bag.
Is the feeling of instant gratification worth more than the regret followed by destroying the piece?
