Karin Waskiewicz paintings 1

Around the world people will be familiar with gobstopper, aka jawbreaker, candies. Produced by slowly depositing layers of differently colored sugars onto their center core, the secret of their many inner hues is only revealed when slowly licked or – at the risk of your teeth – bitten.

2  Memory suitcases

When you think of all the places you’ve been with your trusty suitcase, the memories of your vacations, visits to friends far away, and weekend getaways fill your mind. A suitcase is often an accessory that is with us for some of the most pleasurable moments and it holds an impression of all the places we’ve been. As adorable as old fashioned suitcases are, they just can’t handle the beating of TSA employees, luggage stacking, and baggage carousels, but Israeli artist Yuval Yairi has given them a new purpose.
