‘Functional Art’ is the inspiration behind this handmade piece which can be hung as wall art, used as a chess board or an ottoman tray. Made from Scottish Elm and resin the with checker squares are beautiful burr Elm and white resin. The ‘playing’ surface is framed with ebonised Ash and black and rose gold resin.
The overall dimensions of the piece measure 60cm x 60cm. The chess board squares are 50mm and create a substantial playing surface capable of accommodating the largest tournament size chess pieces.
In all, four layers of heat resistant resin flood coat have been applied which not only creates a smooth ‘watery’ finish but also protects the surface from hot drinks when used as an ottoman tray.
This is a substantial piece of functional art that weighs around 8kg. Hanging this piece of wall art is achieved by a concealed securing bracket which is capable of holding a weight of more than 12kg.
The tray has a recessed bottom for strength and it sits on rubber feet for further stability. All exposed wood surfaces have been finished with hard wax oil.
Dimensions: 60cm x 60cm x 5cm (6cm including feet)
