rubber coated ceramics as analogy for interpersonal relationships

When eating together we share more than food - we share our thoughts, experiences, opinions and feelings, we discuss, we argue or fall in silence. Sometimes in these moments things get broken, which does not mean that we will fall apart.

Scar is a rubber-coated ceramic service with a fragile inner core and a strong flexible outer layer. When broken, the rubber protects it from falling into pieces, keeping the shards together, yet still revealing marks on its surface. Treated in this way, ceramics - strongly associated with family traditions - become a metaphorical symbol for interpersonal communication and relationships.
