Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

They say that all artists are not chess players but all chess players are artists.

This is an object that is very close to my heart: the beauty of chess is it can be whatever you want it to be.

It transcends language, age, race, religion, politics, gender, and socioeconomic background. Whatever your circumstances, anyone can enjoy a good fight over the chess board.

Material: Travertino Classico marble board with Brass and Oxidized Brass pieces with reflective Top.
