    ITEM#: 20821833

    Thai artisan Waraporn Khamsuk creates this puzzle out of rain tree wood, modeling it after the Japanese puzzles called Kumiki, or 'to join wood together.' When assembled, the thirteen-piece puzzle forms the shape of a pig. The artisan rates the difficulty as medium.

    Story Behind the Art:
    I'm Waraporn Khamsuk and I was born in 1990 in Northern Thailand. I'm the eldest daughter in the family, and I grew up with the wooden games my father crafted. I'd watch him select wood, dry it naturally and assemble to complete a game. They are challenging and fun something you'll never find in computer games. My father founded our family's game workshop. At one time, he worked at a factory that produced bamboo skewers for meatballs. Then, the factory began to take orders for wooden games, and my father was allowed to work from home to earn extra income. 'The factory saw that he put his best efforts into creating games that needed careful crafting of wooden joints. It was completely different from making skewers, which is repetitious as they are all the same. 'When he didn't have any orders from the factory, he began creating new games. Then, he started to gain his own customers. 'He created brain teasers, interlocking puzzles and wooden board games. 'My favorites are the wooden games because I grew up with them. They teach me to think, plan and concentrate, and I apply these skills in my everyday life. Although technology has taken over life today, I'm still charmed by wooden games. 'Creating them and crafting them are the precious legacy my father left me. He died in an accident in 2012 while I was at the university. I dedicated all of my spare time to keeping our workshop going. 'Along with the wooden games, we now craft wooden tableware. People appreciate the beauty and the uniqueness of the natural wood pattern. 'I studied how to design plates and was guided in this by the artisans who work with us. We don't use any artificial or chemical finishes to our tableware. The more a piece is used and washed, the more beautiful it becomes, especially when food is arranged over it.'
