Trays of memory

A legacy that leaves you confused: missing pieces and mismatched items, yet these items are still full of affection, Broken or chipped porcelain, but we don’t just want to “Abandon” them…The memories of family values remain trapped between a past full of nostalgia and a future of uncertainty. Due to their broken state they no longer become completely usable but instead, become objects. With the “trays of memories”, all these objects rediscover a new life and relish their “second chance”: a uniform adhesive welcomes them and sometimes incorporates them but at other times they complete them. It fills the gaps and reinforces the objects’ unmistakable footprints.The service comes together well and metaphorically; the pieces find “dignity” and a use that, in a time before, seemed lost.These “trays of memory”, can be built by everyone and can be made directly from the objects they love most. They crystallize a past so dear to us, reminding us of precious memories, “drunk in company”, “Memoirs of a coffee break in the family”, or perhaps that “historic quarrel” with subsequent and final conquest “promise of love”!
