TOUCH/ EGG KNOBS
To feel the body of a red pear and the gentle curve of a river polished stone is to stir maternal emotions and a sense of passing time. Hearty roundness is evocative of flesh, a womb, our bodily origins - to a feeling of before home, before we understood home. To the moment we take our first sip of air to the memory of remembering the softness of our mothers. A knob, a handle, a place of contact with architecture can bring you there, and the oval, egg shape, so ingrained in us, can give comfort and familiarity in a foreign space.
