彼得·威尔特郡会说拼图!

彼得·威尔特郡起源于加拿大安大略省的汉密尔顿,制造了最不可思议的拼图盒。我们想知道更多关于彼得的事,他做木工有多久了,当然还有拼图和收藏。他有最喜欢的拼图吗?享受…

代谢学家:作为一个真正欣赏世界上最好的拼图设计师的手艺的人,你能解释一下你参与了这个项目,你是如何第一次提出这个想法的,是谁提出的吗?你做拼图有多久了?

彼得威尔特郡:我住在加拿大安大略省的Stoney Creek,离多伦多大约一小时车程。我一直对魔术感兴趣,而我对机械谜题的热爱正是源于这种兴趣。当我年轻的时候,我花了很多时间在我父亲的工作室里修补和创造东西。当我买了我的第一所房子,我建立了一个小作坊,在2003年,我开始认真地设计和建造拼图,对拼图盒特别感兴趣。我也是一个拼图收藏家,我的收藏包括几乎所有分类的拼图。但我的大部分陈列架都被拼图盒占据了。

药剂师计划

代谢学家:你能解释一下你在这个项目中的参与情况,以及这个想法是如何被引入的,是由谁提出的吗?

彼得威尔特郡:药剂师计划started as an idea that was tossed around several of the puzzle making forums. The motivating force behind the project was Robert Yarger, and we all became interested in the idea of bringing several craftsmen from across the planet together to create puzzle boxes that would be incorporated into an Apothecary Puzzling Chest. When the conversation turned to serious talk of creating the chest I jumped at the opportunity to be involved.

代谢学家:“Ferris'Box”是一款漂亮的3英寸拼图/魔术盒拼图抽屉,是您对药剂师拼图箱的独特贡献。你能告诉我们它是由什么制成的吗?关于这个通常被称为不寻常的谜题的发展,以及它独特的特点和机制,你能和我们分享些什么吗?它经常被描述成一个被关在笼子里的魔方!

I often like to take inspiration from the things around me…彼得威尔特郡

Peter:Ferris的盒子设计实际上是从一张当地的销售传单中得到了一些灵感。在传单上,我注意到一个小的便携式USB驱动器有一个有趣的保护套。我经常喜欢从周围的事物中获得灵感,我喜欢保护套中使用的机械装置,并思考是否可以将其整合到益智盒中。通过一些快速的设计草图,我想出了一个可行的概念。当涉及到手工设计,我知道我想尝试代表我来自哪里。我选择了胡桃木和枫木这两种原产于加拿大的木材作为对比,也因为我之前曾对这两种木材进行过研究,发现它们是非常适合拼图的稳定木材。

银行抢劫 费里斯盒子

代谢学家:你最近让我意识到这个拼图盒是以世界上第一个摩天轮的发明者乔治·华盛顿·盖尔·费里斯的名字命名的。你为什么选择这个名字,花了多长时间来设计和开发这个拼图?

Peter:I had a bit of fun with the name and wanted it to hint at the mechanism incorporated into the puzzle box. Hence, the name is in homage to the inventor of the Ferris wheel. I began designing the puzzle box first on paper.

这个过程让我有机会在进入工作坊之前,对拼图的整体外观进行研究。当我最终开始施工时,我只能在我不忙于日常工作的两天内完成这个项目。这是困难的,实际制作的20个拼图盒原来是分散了9个月的时间。

代谢学家:“Ferris’ Box” has three unique moves. Were there any elements you would have liked to improve or further develop?

彼得威尔特郡:我喜欢有有趣的机械动作的益智盒,我觉得费里斯的盒子属于这一类。创造一个新的和独特的东西拼图框是一个有趣的挑战。最后,我想为费里斯的盒子设计的大部分东西都实现了,所以我对最终的设计很满意。

代谢学家:“Ferris’Box”参加了2012年Nob Yoshigahara益智设计大赛,你如期参赛并获得了评委会一等奖。你怎么找到这个的?

彼得威尔特郡:为《费里斯的盒子》赢得评委会一等奖是一件激动人心的事,也是一个巨大的惊喜。在设计比赛中总是有精彩的参赛作品,被认可并为你的作品脱颖而出真是一种荣誉。

代谢学家:所有的拼图抽屉都有自己的独特性和创造性。你有特别喜欢的吗?

我真的让我的创造力失控,最终的设计是一个真正的挑战生产
彼得威尔特郡

Peter:药剂师的箱子里放着一批不同的工匠的作品,从经验丰富的专业人士到第一次创作的人,但所有的拼图框条目都是经过艰苦而充满爱心的创作。每一个设计都有一些独特的东西,我被吸引到和单一的将是尽量减少胸部作为一个整体。每一个条目都带来了提升药剂师宝箱的东西,使之成为一件真正酷而令人费解的艺术品。

代谢学家:Were you proud to have been involved in this project?

彼得威尔特郡:作为药剂师宝箱的一员,我感到无比自豪。这是一个惊人的壮举,协调来自世界各地的工匠专注于一个单一的项目,并保持与该项目完成。事实上,每个人都坚持下来,创造了如此美丽的东西,这是一个巨大的成就,我将永远感到自豪!

代谢学家:你是如何发现这个项目的过程的?你对最后一个完整的药剂师谜题箱有什么看法?

彼得威尔特郡:From start to finish the project took several years. So at times, it was difficult to see the project moving forward. All the craftsman were very secretive in what they were creating so that we would all be surprised when the Apothecary Chests were complete. Besides keeping in touch with the other craftsman on the forum Robert was the only one that we could really turn to and bounce ideas off of, and he was great at giving us feedback on each of our prototypes and how they could be incorporated into the solution of the chest. In the end, it was a beautiful thing to see all the varied work of the individual craftsman come together.

Apothecary Puzzle Chest!

Apothecary Chest
我自豪地把我的药房陈列在我们餐厅的书架上。

代谢学家:你把你的胸部放在哪里?你试过完整的顺序拼图吗?

彼得威尔特郡:I am very lucky to have an understanding wife and she currently lets me proudly display my Apothecary Chest on the top of a bookshelf in our dining room. I have attempted solving the Apothecary Chest in its entirety and it had me scratching my head several times. There are some very clever designs incorporated into the Chest and I had a great time solving its secrets. One thing I haven’t done is to solve it again but keep track of its move counts. I think it would be interesting to know how many moves the chest requires solving from start to finish. I just need a rainy week to get the chance to do that : )

银行抢劫 银行抢劫

银行抢劫

代谢学家:You have been producing mechanical puzzles for almost a decade now. In 2008, you produced “Bank Heist” and entered the Nob Yoshigahara Puzzle Design Competition. What can you tell us about the origins, design, and production of this take apart puzzle?

Peter:银行抢劫是我第一次认真尝试设计和制作一个机械拼图。设计比赛对我来说是一个有趣的主意,我喜欢从头开始创造一个难题的挑战。我的主要任务是设计一些看起来像艺术品的东西。我喜欢这个需要解开一枚被困硬币的谜题。为了使它更具艺术性,我制作了这个拼图来展示这枚硬币,就好像它在画廊里展出一样,上面有一个用链子拴着的栅栏和栅栏,防止观众拿着艺术品逃跑。最后,我喜欢完成的拼图的外观,我甚至回到了纸上的设计来更新它,并添加了更复杂的锁定机制。但由于我现在专注于拼图盒,我还没有找到时间来设计新的设计。
