Artifact Puzzles - Erin Hanson Crystal Grove Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 80.00

This is a 357 piece puzzle of Erin Hanson's painting, "Crystal Grove". With split tendril connectors and similar colors sweeping across much of the image, this puzzle is one of the most difficult we make. The puzzle is designed by Tara Flannery and Jef Bambas, inspired by a tessellation by Mark Dow. Its pattern and whimsies pair well with Erin Hanson's Open Impressionism art style and emphasis on movement in the landscape. If you are looking for a gorgeous and challenging puzzle, this one is for you.

Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood. Packaged in our standard pine wood box. Made in USA (specifically, in Menlo Park, just south of San Francisco).

10" by 16"

Review: Wow this puzzle was hard. And gorgeous. And fun. I was sorry when we finished, and miss the feel and look of it. This was a gift from a friend, and as soon as we were done we snapped up another Architecht puzzle. We're hooked.

Review: My daughter loved the puzzle yet it only took her about 6 hours to finish. I would have liked to see more pieces to make it even more challenging. It was fun and difficult but for someone who is really good at puzzles needs a bit more.

Review: This kept us entertained in the evenings for a couple of weeks! And it's so pretty that we framed it afterwards :) Don't be fooled by the relatively low count of pieces ... it was the hardest puzzle I put together.

Review: I took a chance on this one, the piece count is quite a bit lower than my usual threshold of interest, but it turned out to be well worthwhile. My habit is to work puzzles without looking at the box picture. Obviously I have some idea of what they will be since I had to see the catalog picture before placing an order, but I make a point of not glimpsing the box cover when I unpack the shipment and dump out the pieces and put the box out of sight. This took me a couple of long afternoons working “blind”. I greatly enjoyed not being able to distinguish any edge pieces. I’ve done a few irregularly shaped ones from Liberty Puzzles and been disappointed that despite there being no straight edges the edge pieces can still be distinguished by a narrow color border. That’s not the case here. Any given piece could be a corner, or an edge, or interior. The colors are very vivid, perhaps the brightest in my experience, and the colors are so numerous and change so quickly that a strategy of building out by color is not very productive. As far as the piece shapes go, this is not like some Wentworth puzzles I’ve done where many pieces are exactly the same. I’m pretty sure no two pieces are exactly alike but they are so similar that looking for distinct shapes to fit in a hole will not get you very far very fast either. So why only four stars? Another 100 or 200 more pieces would have earned it the fifth star in my estimation, but see my first sentence - well worthwhile.
