I designed and cast this chess set as a thank you gift for my dear friend who inspired me to learn to scuba dive. Each piece was first modelled in Sculpey and individual molds were made from these forms. I then cast each piece in low-temp metal. The pieces include: an octopus, a fiddler crab, an old-fashioned dive helmet, tanks, two types of fins, a starfish and a variety of shells.
