With two venues for Puzzle Parties in Japan this year, Osaka and hakone, I was guaranteed a good haul. Click any of the pictures to see the full collection from Japan 2010. Or here.
Here is a picture of my birthday present from Alice. Itís a Heavy-headed Burr, designed by my friend and IPP30 Mt Fuji Tour organiser, Junichi Yananose. It is one of only three made by Iwahiro (Hiroshi Iwahara) of the Karakuri Design Group for the 2008 Design Competition. It is made from oak, rosewood and zelkova.
This necklace (below) is made from many copies of the well-known disentanglement puzzle. I emptied four department stores in Osaka while creating this. It was frequently photographed!
