The least powerful yet most important piece on the board. After all, the aim of chess is to capture your opponent’s King, while protecting your own.
Each Berd Vay’e piece is casted with 8-10 layers over a 24-72 hours period. The sculpture is then baked, carefully protecting it from the formation of air bubbles or imperfections thus resulting in a seamless, crystal clear sculpture. The cooled Lucite® is shatter resistant, having heralded from its early use on submarines and helicopters. Each sculpture is then shaped and polished by hand, requiring relentless attention from multiple artisans to complete every one-of-a-kind piece.
