. Many people take great comfort in discovering hidden treasures in case within pouches and containers. My collection of objects represent the set of curated mysteries that act as talismans of self control.

Through my work I used the timeless nature of porcelain and combine it with the tempting aspect of inflated foil pouches, to create a luxury mystery bag. Is the feeling of instant gratification worth more than the regret followed by destroying the piece?. Andrei Jakab
