Chess Art: Solid Steel Sculpted Chess Pieces
Sometimes chess pieces double as art, they really do. This is especially true in the case of the sculpted steel chess pieces and chess tables made by Denver Chess Club chess player, artist and welder JC MacNeil. JC has been a local fixture here in Denver for many years, most of us who play here know him and have played him. And many of us admire his gorgeous chess tables. He only made one set of chess pieces, but I hope someday he makes another one, as they are truly beautiful. In the youtube video in the description section on the link above you can watch JC explain how he makes the pieces and the tables, and even see some footage of him welding the steel chess tables.
