over the years i have had the great fortune to work on collaborations with amazing artists and makers. 

haand, Eli Whitney, NC

Sarah Loertscher, Seattle, WA

the  tangram trivet  + puzzle set is made of solid brass, copper, and aluminum, and backed with sturdy cork to leave tabletops scratch-free. assemble all the pieces to create a trivet or coaster, or deconstruct to enjoy one of the world's oldest puzzles. each set is housed in a handmade box made of sassafras wood with a letterpress printed guide.

sarah loertscher rediscovered this game which was one of her favorite things from her elementary school math class which brought on this wonderful collaboration between us and Jenny Wittlinger, who printed  the letterpress guide.
