Artifact Puzzles is a maker of wooden jigsaw puzzles working out of Menlo Park California in Silicon Valley. The business was established in 2009 by University of Washington electrical designing teacher Maya Gupta, and was initially situated in Seattle, Washington. Dissimilar to conventional wooden jigsaw puzzles which are hand-cut by jigsaw, Artifact Puzzles laser-cuts 1/4″ thick 3-employ plywood.
The puzzle pieces are composed by a craftsman for each new puzzle, and don’t take after a predictable style of cut. For instance, some of their puzzles have conventional handle connectors, while others have piece connectors shape like mists, hearts, winged animal feet, horse hooves, and antiquated Greek images. Like conventional wooden jigsaw puzzles, the vast majority of their puzzles have “caprice pieces”, which are pieces molded like unmistakable items. These pieces are intended to coordinate the topic of each puzzle, and range from a dairy animals hopping over a moon in one of their Daniel Merriam puzzles, to pieces formed like ballet dancers in their Degas puzzle. The organization offers more than 200 distinct puzzles of an expansive scope of workmanship, with a curiously substantial determination of capricious neo-surrealist craftsmanship and sixteenth century Dutch craftsmanship.
