Mystery Mugs Fundraiser, Craft Council of BC

I created this cut paper piece as a donation for the Craft Council of BC’s Mystery Mugs fundraiser happening tomorrow evening. The event is to help raise money to replace the broken furnace at their Granville Island shop. I briefly considered creating a paper sculpture mug, but then I came up with this idea. The piece is 9″ x 9″ framed.

What do a furnace and a mug have in common you say? They keep us cozy! Many of our mug-nificent artists have practical, sculptural, fanciful and downright crazy mugs to be sold at the event. The catch? All the mugs will be wrapped up in mystery boxes (valued at $50 and $100) so you get to guess which one might be inside from their mugshots hung on the walls! Best part, after all the boxes have been sold we’ll open them up together and trade around to get your favourite!

Get your tickets here if you are interested in attending, or you can place a bid on pieces (like mine) that are featured in the online auction.
