This was a fun project! We have wanted to do a set for about 15 years, but never had a reason to. But this summer a client asked us if we would be interested in commission a chess set we said YES and started the design work. We love the south west and knew that this idea would be a hit. The chess pieces are made out of Cottonwood , walnut Copper, African mahogany, Apple Coral,and Lapis lazulil. The table is made from a alligator Juniper burl and black and wight marble.

I love the organic yet geometric forms you created for each chess piece. You’ve manage to create a unique chess set that will be admired by many.

I really like the chess pieces. My favourite piece is the horse on the Indian side. Nice clean work.
