Thom Spencer likes to experiment with color when designing a puzzle.
Puzzles have been popular, inexpensive entertainment since the Great Depression. And for one puzzle maker in Maryland, they're not just a form of entertainment; they're art. Thom Spencer takes months to design, paint and cut wooden puzzles that involve materials from acrylic paint to cupcake sprinkles. Courtney Collins spent an afternoon in his workshop to learn about his creative process and his influences.
