Featured Chess Set: July 2016

July’s Featured Chess Set is shown courtesy of April Baker. Baker is an artist who learned to play chess from her father as a young girl, and she enjoys teaching the game to others. Inspired by a visit to the World Chess Hall of Fame, Baker created a series of chess sets, which includes the one on display here. Having suffered from a broken wrist that prevented her from painting, she chose to use industrial materials like the ones used to compose this set, as she could easily roll them together despite her injury.
