The Daily Object Shrine
Can heirlooms become a shrine.
Glass is one of the most recognisable family heirloom; often displayed in special cabinets. We connect with them as delicate objects that hold a high emotional value, be very careful while using them when allowed on certain festive days. A totem is a an object or animal believed by a particular society to have spiritual significance and adopted by it as an emblem. I see a distinct connection between the two; the glass as a household object and that of a totem. Objects that become almost like a shrine, a homage of an era by-gone.
