Another Goal by Katerina Mertikas
Artist: Katerina Mertikas
Puzzle Designer: Jasen Robillard
Dimensions: 41 cm x 27 cm
Piece Count: 434
Difficulty: 4 out of 5
Given our Canadian roots, it seemed only right to have a winter sports and hockey themed puzzle within the StumpCraft portfolio! When Katerina contacted me last year, I thought Another Goal would be a perfect fit.
Katerina is a self-taught artist based out of Ottawa. Her clear passion for family and children shine through in her colourful and vibrant "naive" expressionist art. Her work has been featured regularly on cards, calendars and stamps for Unicef & the Canadian Lung Association and her originals can be found in many galleries across the country.
Puzzle piece design for Another Goal was focussed on outdoor winter activities, particularly hockey and skating. You will find several multi-piece whimsies including many hockey players and a zamboni. The multi-piece whimsy designs make the whimsies fairly stealthy and the puzzle quite challenging - only the keenest eye will find them all. He shoots, he scores!

Love your puzzles!
My daughter, for Christmas, bought me three of your smaller puzzles in tins. There were awesome so I immediately ordered a large one. And since I love hockey and winter… And it is truly amazing. I am an avid jigsaw puzzler (is that a word?) and this one is my favourite. I love the uniqueness of the material - wood - and of the shapes and of course the art and the colours are wonderful. I also tend to do a puzzle once and then move on but I will definitely do this one again. I am also planning on ordering another one!
These puzzles are seriously good quality. I had so much fun with all the strange shapes and pieces.
This build was a highlight of my holiday break! A true Canadian puzzle. Great difficulty level. Loved the whimsies.
Bought for my son and daughter-in-law for a Christmas Present.
Was a good Christmas project that they finished over the holiday.
