Symbolic Connections; Shared Reflections
Symbolic Connections; Shared Reflections uses handmade mugs to symbolically connect people and a blog as a tool to share reflections. Food, and the vessels eaten from, evokes memories of people, events, and traditions. By giving one mug away and keeping the other, the objects act as a symbolic connection. When the two owners drink from their respective mugs it will remind them of each other. Weather physically present or alive in the heart, there is nothing more intimate than sharing a meal or sipping tea together.
