4012 Broken Family, 1999

: Bob Goedewaagen

The broken family is a cornucopia of tableware pieces that lost their next of kin; ceramic teacups and saucers that were once a gift of a friend, plates that were bought at a flea-market or in a small shop during a trip abroad. In spite of their defects they survived and still inhabit a kitchen cabinet. All the different pieces find new family members, without loosing their unique identity or even their defects, as soon as they're united as one set by silver-plating all of them.
