The series is inspired by a story Makiko Nakamura tells about a tea service left behind at the end of civilisation. In the story, seeds land on the disintegrating porcelain by chance 100 years later, consuming the pieces in flowers. Makiko creates her works from stories she generated with some inspiration and her works also play a role as media to approach the stories behind them.
….One hundred years after the party, all the luxury furniture and ornaments in the room have rotten and moulded, and only porcelain tea set has been left. Gorgeous gold paint on the tea set has been washed away by rain and the tea set was absolutely lonely and miserable. But on the day, one hundred years after the party, it is nothing short of a miraculous, beautiful bird dropping the seed on the tea set. Then, leaves and germs come out and flowers bloom on it. The tea set has got a new life and not lonely anymore.
Happily ever after…
