When a plate breaks, we are certainly not particularly happy and, after picking up the broken pieces, we throw them away without undue care in order to forget about it. This object tries to transform a negative and unpleasant event, like the breaking of an object, into something positive and pleasant, like receiving a gift.
The object (or the series of objects) seems aesthetically normal and purely functional if it were not for the hidden heart within.
When the plate breaks, it lets its content come out: a little object that represents the soul or memory. This object can be kept by one as an amulet or a good luck charm, and it may serve to make one a bit more conscious of the life hidden in the objects which we use and which accompany us in life.
One last gift before disappearing.
