A Ripple


A Ripple series is inspired by the scene; a small wave on the surface of water as caused by an object dropping into it or a slightly breezing. Without its own saucer, the dish is fragile and vulnerable that would be motivated ‘mindful eating’, due to the case that unless it can be able to be kept balance in a hurry, it will sway as though a tumbler during a meal. ‘Mindful eating’ which guides to rediscovering a healthy and joyful relationship with food. The art of mindfulness can transform our struggles with food and renew our sense of pleasure, appreciation, and satisfaction with eating. It is an approach that involves bringing one’s full attention to the process of eating to all the tastes, smells, thoughts, and feelings that arise during a meal. How can we fully aware of the way how we eat with a deeper appreciation of food? Although that appreciation only lasts seconds, holding on to it longer and being slow down while eating may a new way of practice to savor food and finally nourish our body the way it deserves.
