I was exhibiting a piece in one of the galleries in Budapest, Hungary. The owner of the gallery was very supportive of my work. The piece was a 3 dimensional puzzle of a teacup. Agnes the owner of the gallery told me that she  was requested many times to show the visitors of the gallery how it came apart. She told me that each time she touched the piece and played this game of dismantelling and rebuilding, she fell in love with it more and more. This is how this teacup has finally ended up in her own collection.

I love this story because people are normally afraid of touching glass, mainly because it is fragile. Here is an example of how this preconception can be changed by making a piece that is deliberately tactile, it gives a chance to feel the weight, the temperature and to have  a more intimate relationship with a piece of art.
