Mizzonk had one of my favorite booths this year at the NY Gift show. This husband and wife design duo from Canada had really thoughtful and considered work. They were the recipients of this years award of excellence in the Accent on Design area of the gift show. Some of my favorite pieces were out of their art collection: Inspiration Series. Simple shapes partially cut from paper then hand folded in a specific direction to create a sense of movement, shadow and light. I also loved the Yes or No Tic Tac Toe, the beautifully crafted X's and O's placed in a nice big chunk of walnut or cedar would be a great gift, especially for a hard to gift Dad!
