This textured grey puzzle pot with turquoise rings formed part of the Intellectual Property Exhibition at Alliance Francais in Durban earlier this year.  It was the first larger piece that I made from Puzzle pieces.  I had made some smaller simpler pieces for The Design Indaba Collab Exhibition in Durban in 2015.

As with the lampshades I made recently, I allowed the muted underside of the puzzle pieces to be the main colour, with the colourful surprise coming from underneath – as can be seen in the mirror base beneath the puzzle pot.

I am looking to working more with this medium!  Here was a Christmas Wreath I made a couple of years ago from larger painted puzzle pieces.

The construction is very time consuming, so I keep it all happening on a tray, that I bring out and work on whenever I can.
