We’ve once again taken on a hosting role with the amazing team @ the Karma Cup to run their “best functional glass” competition, and we can’t wait to show off all the heat!
The following is a letter from the event organizer;
The Karma Cup is an elite Cannabis, Hash, Edible and Glass competition held in Toronto, Ontario. Starting Monday August 14th, pieces will be displayed for three weeks in a downtown gallery setting. The competition is then closed out by a weekend of events held September 9-10 in four of the GTA’s best Vapor lounges.
In partnership with Boroheads Glass Gallery all pieces submitted by an artist will be on view in a dedicated display at their flagship gallery space in downtown Toronto.
Pieces will be professionally photographed, edited, and displayed on both Boroheads and Karmacup websites and featured on both our social media channels, forever immortalizing the pieces on display.
Each piece will be critiqued by 200 qualified judges based on the following criteria:
– Creativity (ever seen a piece like this before?)
– Aesthetic Appeal (do you like the way the piece looks?)
– Clean/Seamless Assembly (does the piece appear well constructed?)
– Perceived Difficulty (did the artist face unique challenges during creation?)
– Concept Execution (does this piece align with contemporary artistic & functional ideals?)
– Innovativeness (are there any boundaries pushed or new concepts unveiled?)
<– Originality (does this piece stand out from the pack?)
– Saleability (does the price of the piece affect its accessibility?)
We’ve got a well respected Canadian glass artist working to make the next generation of functional-art trophies something special. There is an awards ceremony taking place the weekend of the event as well! Can’t wait to see you out!
