Log Chess Sets
set cut from a single branch. Originally made for use while I was
working at NKD in Norway, they were derived from the first Man
Made project (created while there) in which a single piece of
wood was used to create a piece of furniture. The final dimensions
therefore, being partially determined by available material, rather
than planned in advance.
|Different pieces of the branch are chosen to emphasise the character of each chess piece. For example the kings and queens have snooty upturned noses while the horses have long downturned snouts. The smaller pieces of the branch are used for pawns, while the larger pieces are used for more solid castles.|
