"A heart is a heavy burden." Each cup and saucer set represents a stage in a relationship: anonymity, acquaintanceship, friendship, and unconditional love. As relationships deepen, the weight of emotions do as well. This weight is carried in the palm of your hands similar to how a saucer holds a cup. As your eye goes down the shelf, the material used gets heavier because a bond is formed between viewer and the piece. A relationship is formed.
