My name is Lee Krasnow, world famous designer of interlocking wooden puzzles, master puzzle-craftsman, and owner of Pacific Puzzleworks: a California based puzzle manufacturing business. Over the course of my career as a full-time puzzlemaker (since 2001) I have undertaken numerous elaborate projects which have pushed the limits of my creativity and skills as a self-taught artist, inventor and entrepreneur. In the simplest sense, this website serves a portfolio of photographs that I have taken of those projects, however I hope someday to turn this into an autobiographical catalogue raisonné
If you are interested in purchasing something that I have made, please check out the shop
page for an up-to-the-minute listing of my currently available inventory. Be forewarned that I make puzzles in small batches which can often sell out quickly after sending out an availability update. If you want to receive these updates, then sign up for my mailing list
to receive occasional announcements from my sales agent Michelle.
If you're serious about acquiring one of my higher end puzzles, sign up for an account
on Nick Baxter's Baxterweb Puzzle Auction
website, where you will occasionally find puzzles of mine listed for sale by proxy-bid auction. Typically Nick runs his auctions about twice per year.
Come to the upcoming downtown San Francisco holiday craft fair that I'll be participating in: Renegade Craft Fair
is at the Concourse Exhibition Center East Hall on December 17-18 (11am-7pm)
