Guest Post: Charletta Reviews Under the Sweetgum Tree

Today we have a guest review fromĀ Charletta! A big thanks to her for sending us her feedback on this puzzle.

Charletta completed one of the new 100 piece Pomegranate puzzles that comes in the tin box by artist Charley Harper entitled “Under the Sweetgum Tree.”

Under the Sweetgum Treeby Pomegranate. 100 pieces. Size: 8″ x 10″

The following items in the chart was rated on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.

Picture Quality: 4
Level of detail: 2
Piece Size: 4
How the pieces are cut: 3
Overall quality: 4

I completed this puzzle alone in just a couple of hours. It was small yet intricate, although it did not take long.

The pieces, which were a good thickness and not easily bendable, were similarly in three or four shades of one color. The pieces were also close in design with lots of lines.

This picture was nice and different. I like nice and different! The image and quality is very good, the pieces were fully interlocking which made for a good quality picture in the end.

The completed puzzle

I was not familiar with the brand or the artis, but would try to find more works by both. In addition to the abstract scene, the small tin the puzzle came in was a nice touch to the value of the puzzle. This puzzle made by Pomegranate Communications, Inc. was finely crafted with well cut pieces that truly locked the pieces into a fine picture. The artist Charley Harper had a fine skill in creating this abstract picture with detail to the the sweetgum surrounded by the leaves of the tree. That’s what I see when I look at the puzzle right-side up.

However, if you turn the puzzle upside-down it appears that there is someone sitting under the tree. I like how the image could be looked at in different ways and you see something different. This would be a great puzzle for any inquisitive mind.

    nice review- thanks! I haven’t tried these 100 piece ones- i have some of the 500 piece puzzles and a few months ago did one of the ‘kid’ 300 piece puzzles – Pool Cat. It was fun and very sturdy – bigger pieces too! I think this one would be hard with all the same colors!

      Thanks Susanna, If you have the patients, an eye for matching up the lines in the puzzle and the shapes of the pieces, this should not be hard at all.
