Outdoor Chess Sets


The Bishop was the most popular chess piece I made---one was bought for the retiring bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina. Three feet high (about 1 meter) and mostly made of sheet steel, his mitre is an old garden trowel, and the lace on his cuffs are electric motor parts. I drew hands on thin sheet steel and cut them out. His jaw is an old bearing cover turned upside down and welded to a piece of pipe. The eyes are made of washers. Embroidery on his robes was simply done with steel welding bead.
