Puzzles

Our exceptional puzzles are made up of fragments of randomly broken decorated plaques (i.e. pinax) or pots. When assembled, these “variable geometry” 2D or 3D puzzles constitute a unique artifact for your collection. 

Our Gods and Heroes series is based on mythological scenes depicted on ancient Greek vases. A few examples include the birth of Athena emerging from Zeus’ head; Heracles fighting the Lernaean Hydra; Theseus and the Minotaur and Odysseus and his men blinding the cyclops Polyphemus.

The scenes are hand-painted on the clay plaque and then fired by following the ancient techniques. Following the firing, each “pinax” is randomly broken so that the resulting shapes are unique to each puzzle box. The ceramic fragments are mounted on a magnetic plate with self-adhesive tape and the puzzle is exhibited on a cardboard mount.
