This set is in a private collection.

Red Cord Designs

This collaborative chess/checkers set was created as a second donation item for the Craft Alliance.  The theme of this set was a playful interpretation on the attributes we apply to different species.

COLLABORATIONS

There is an assumption that artists cannot work well together, as each individual's vision is unique and the very nature of art is self-expression.  I have been fortunate in having the opportunity to bring together a group of artists who have generously given of their time and skills to create unique, one of a kind pieces to benefit a common cause.

This chess set is in the World Chess Hall of Fame collection.

MRA is a group of artists working in clay, glass, metal, and fiber.  This collaborative chess set was created as a donation item for the Craft Alliance, a community based arts organization in St. Louis, MO.  The concept for this item is collaboration, as CA collaborates with the community to work with and empower individuals through self-expression.
