“I created a contemporary chess set some years ago. The set was commissioned by the ‘Impressions Gallery’ Bath, Somerset.”
So few pictures remain. Here the Knight and the part finished Pawn.
Glass Studio and Gallery
This is the first sketch. Working in cut glass, you can’t have curves or angles everything needs to be straight lines. This does offer a challenge though.
Why glass and metal?
I wanted to use materials that represented architecture. We live in cities full of glass towers crammed together on grids divided by roads and city blocks. The whole scene locked in a struggle for power and position…a chess game in full flow.
Study for the knight, you can see the horse drawn on the other side showing through the page.
The Pawn is both a womb and a tomb, The Crone.
The Castle or Rook became a fusion of both.
