Dennis Brady Cercles Et Des Carres Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle
|CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.|
This is a 65 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of a digital artwork by Dennis Brady. The pieces are very abstract and were designed by our puzzle artist Tara Flannery to be little pieces of artwork themselves (to see example images, click on the small image underneath the puzzle image). This is a quick, fun puzzle- it takes most adults 20-60 minutes to put together. We laser-cut the pieces from 1/4" thick wood. The puzzle does not have any straight edge pieces, and measures about 11" x 11" when completed. The puzzle is packaged in a small box with a magnetic clasp. Made in USA.

"Cercles..." May Have You Going in CirclesDec 16, 2012
By Gary L. Connely
Looking for a reasonably priced, made-in-America gift? Well if the person on your gift list is a puzzler, you need look no further than a wooden jigsaw puzzle made by Artifact Puzzles, (and if there's nobody on your gift list, you can always give it to yourself). Artifact is a small - how about tiny - Seattle based company that turns out some of the best puzzles this side of Victorian England. They use high quality photographic reproductions, printed with colorful soy based inks; bond them to 1/4 inch plywood; and then cut the pieces using a sophisticated laser technology. The results are intricate little jigsaws that will delite almost any age puzzler, (well.... over the age of about 10).
Dennis Brady is an American "fractal digital" artist working in the Pacific Northwest. "Cercles Et Des Carres" is not necessarily typical of his work - most of the paintings that I've seen are more psychedelic - but what the heck, "Cercles...." makes a lovely, jewel-like little puzzle.
The puzzle is small in size, (as are most Artifact puzzles) - about 11" X 11" - and there are only 65 pieces. But the pieces are a joy to handle - they have a nice "heft" and are cut in swirling flowing patters that are a pleasure to look at and handle. The fit and finish of the pieces are just about perfect.
It doesn't take long to put "Cercles...." together - it only took my wife and me 40 minutes, (it always takes us longer than it should because she hogs the pieces and hangs her hand over the puzzle so I can't see - grrrrrrrrr).

Surprises abound.Dec 19, 2012
By Susan Kaput
Well, I have to admit that Gary L. Connely's review practically says it all (well done), but I want to add a few words as well. This puzzle was full of surprises for me. The shapes and heft of the pieces, the wonderful way they had of fitting together, the gorgeous colors, and another surprise I won't mention. I made the mistake of answering the phone while in the midst of doing this puzzle - no idea what the call was about, and I'm sure the caller (a friend) was quite irritated with my long pauses... I really like this puzzle a lot and will probably do it again over the holidays with my family - ok, I'll let them do it without my interference, I'll just 'supervise'. One more thing that surprised me (ok, two things) about this puzzle it that it's more challenging than you'd expect for something with so few pieces and also, that, while not being a very large puzzle, it has a sense of 'massiveness' to it. Hmmm, I think I've finished now. Buy this puzzle, folks, you'll have great fun and will be the owner of a wonderful piece of coffee table sculptural art.
