The Michael Aram Special Edition Chess Set is the first gaming piece made by the artist. His love of nature and antiques workmanship served as the inspiration to create what he considers a 'medieval floral fantasy' motif - unicorns with petal manes and king protea flowers abstracted to represent the "King". "It's interesting how various flower sculpts have taken on the 'personality' of the traditional chess icons. I plan to continue onwards to design more game sets in the future."

About Michael Aram:
American artist Michael Aram studied art in New York in the late 1980s before traveling to India on an inspirational journey, where he discovered a rich metalworking tradition that inspired his turn toward handcrafted design. Michael Aram established a home and workshop in New Delhi, where he began crafting objects ranging from tableware to furniture, all of which reflect the hand of the artisan. The tension of line, form, and meaning is a distinguishing characteristic of Aram's extraordinary designs, inspiring thoughtful appreciation and bringing a sense of ceremony in their day-to-day use. Each Michael Aram piece is handmade, so no two items are exactly alike.
