Handmade altered art blocks by mixed media artist Laure Janus.

If you think blocks are for babies, take a closer look at these beauties. Solid wood blocks, the same blocks we played with when we were growing up, are now available in a decidedly adult form.

ABC’s and farm animals have been replaced with words and images meant to convey a variety of feelings, from birthday wishes to encouragement to “just because.”

Each block is painted and/or stained and then collaged and hand stamped before receiving several coats of glossy sealer. The sealer protects the art work and provides durability for display and play. Yes, PLAY, because these blocks are designed to be stacked and arranged into countless configurations to reflect your mood. Delightful to collect and fun to create your own artistic stories depending on the arrangement of the day.

Sturdy, unique, and suitable for play and display, these altered blocks come ready to give in their own drawstring organza bag and are sure to be a welcomed and treasured gift for a very special person...perhaps you?
