Tumi Ishi Wood Blocks

Tumi Ishi Wood Blocks


Maker: Nikki Stinson

Medium: acrylic on wood 

Size: Medium


These are Tumi ishi wooden balancing stones, hand-painted by local artist, Nikki Stinson. The concept for these wooden stones originated in Japan; the name Tumi ishi is Japanese for piled stones.  Unlike standard square blocks, these blocks have many sides making them more challenging to stack.  They promote creative, out of the box thinking and problem solving and they also make great decor and conversation pieces!  Put them in a glass dish, stack them on your dining room table, coffee table, or desk and watch people ooh and ahh (and try not to play with them).
