A poignant tale of the power that can be found in embracing differences and working together

Within the placid confines of a china cabinet rages a long-standing conflict between the Blues and the Reds. When the Blues decide to sneak in and paint the Reds blue, all bets are off. It’s only when they help each other pick up the pieces that they realize they are stronger together. Based on her own character-filled collection of ceramics, Mîrzac creates a moving tale filled with passion and whimsy, reminiscent of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Mixed. Entertaining and sentimental, it is a poignant example of the power that can be found in embracing differences and working together.
