By Lee Grindinger &
Cheryl DePuy Murray

The Victorian Puzzle Art Project was a collaboration of master carver and furniture-maker Lee Grindinger with landscape painter Cheryl DePuy Murray. Both artisans live and work in Montana.

This uniquely exquisite custom box is hand-carved from solid cherry wood. The design of the box and puzzle contained within is a modern creation of the Victorian era.

The Puzzle Box


Beneath the integral lid, Lee Grindinger's beautiful hand carved box snugly contains the 16 wooden puzzle blocks. Upon each of the six sides are painted an original custom art, chosen by the client, in oils by Cheryl DePuy Murray.

The concept for this unique creation was suggested by historian Tom Sergeant of Virginia City, Montana. The client enthusiastically commissioned, with Lee and Cheryl, this tactile, touchable art and magnificent box. The box and puzzle are, we are told, an endless source of entertainment and conversation at the client's parties and private gatherings.
