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.
