The whimsical Radish Moon jigsaws are beautiful heirloom puzzles, and with only 24 pieces, they offer just the right level of challenge for children getting to grips with the art of puzzles.
When Sarah Nicholas Williams, the artist behind Radish Moon, was deciding on the objects to endow with her illustrations, she decided on items that would be cherished and passed from one generation to another. Looking at her own childhood keepsakes, she realised that ceramic dishes and wooden puzzles were two of her most cherished possessions, and thus these gorgeous puzzles came into being!
Handcrafted from maple, and with fairytale-esque characters, magical settings and a sophisticated colour spectrum, these puzzles are destined to live on as cherished childhood objects handed from parent to child

Designer Details Radish Moon was borne of designer Sarah Nicholas Williams’ love for animals, the magic of nature and the classic illustrations of her childhood. Born in the wilderness of Vermont and raised in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, Sarah developed a deep bond with the creatures of moonlight and mountains who ran freely through her back yard and into her imagination. She received her technical training in sculpture and painting from Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts and absorbs daily inspiration from her son Gustavo. The collection includes heirloom quality pieces, including original limited edition prints in handmade driftwood or reclaimed wood frames, handcrafted wooden jigsaw puzzles, handmade stoneware dishes, a picture book, cards and gifttags. All Radish Moon products are handcrafted in the USA.
