Vitalijs Markuns’ Traditional Matchstick Houses




Lithuanian artisan Vitalijs Markuns likes to come up with new ways to construct these striking little houses out of matchsticks without any glue, and then share his process with others.

My grandfather was a clown, and I feel that bringing joy to others is some kind of a mission in our family. We are building matchhouses and teaching others, how to build them – almost everywhere we go, especially, when travelling to other countries.
