Ceramic Chess Set, 2022, Ver.2


This work contains one hundred individual ceramic structures. Designed with dual intention, to be displayed on a wall and handled for a game of chess. Hand-built tiles form one-off stoneware boards, set in a ceramic frame. The thirty two chess pieces are simplistic and brutalist in design. Their robust yet delicate materiality brings attention to the relationship between action and art–object.


Materials: Clear glaze on multiple stonewares with Rimu frame

Size : 350 x 350 x 70 mm  

Hand crafted in Wellington, New Zealand
