Glazed ceramics / Oiled birch
Our very own interpretation of the ancient game of chess! With soft tactile forms, it balances a moderate level of detail with well rounded proportions.
The pieces are naive interpretations of their origin, so people of all ages may connect intuitively with the character they represent on the board.
The birch wood board has a toned-down presence, with hand carved grid and dots to mark the light squares. This makes plenty of room for the white and dark blue pieces to stand out against the warm birch.
All 32 pieces are slip-cast by hand and goes through two firings: A bisque-firing turns the clay into ceramics, while a second glaze-firing melts the glaze to encapsulate each piece. The glaze hardens the pieces for durability and provides a high-gloss finish to accentuate their organic contours.
