Luxury Collectibles: Maxton's Art Gallery offers unique, attractive, and puzzling desktop and coffee-table sculptures that are both decorative and thought provoking. It is rare when a piece of art is capable of evoking frustration and admiration simultaneously. Some "heavy" mettle is required to put a few of these masterfully crafted pieces together. Maxton's Art Gallery is comprised of limited-edition sculptures that are made from brass, copper, aluminum, steel and stainless steel by Mr. GarE Maxton. Gold was used in the making of the Conundrum II, which is a sold-out item.

The owner of a Maxton usually takes an active role with the piece, because the sculpture is an assemblage. Each piece is a geometric puzzle with an accompanying degree of difficulty as indicated on Maxton's website. Maxton's featured pieces are the Conundrum, the Labyrinth, the Symmetry, and the Pyramid. The Conundrum and the Symmetry have three variants. Maxton's sculptures are produced in runs of five or more units. When all the initially produced pieces of a title are sold, it is no longer available. All pieces are engraved and numbered to authenticate originality. Artistically crafted storage cases, the Pen Chest and the Ring Chest, are also available from the gallery. Customized corporate sculptures are also made by request. A company logo can be inserted on a reversible piece of the sculpture, so that the sculpture can be displayed with or without the logo showing.

These limited-edition collectibles are both visually and mentally stimulating. Since many collectors enjoy building and viewing the sculptures, owners are provided the option of return their original piece and trading up to a more expensive offering. Mr. Maxton's sculptures, which are artist's proofs only, are also on display at Maxton's Art Gallery.
