Acrylic Chess Set by Jonathan Adler

I feel that this would be the kind of chess set that some super arch nemesis bad guy would be playing in his hidden lair built in the middle of a skull shaped volcanic island. Looks freakin awesome!


I made and molded these fellas out of clay a year ago, for a troll chess.

These are the Kings, Queens and Pawns of the game. The group to the left is fjälltroll (trolls from mountains) and to the right we have skogstroll (trolls from the forest). It’s  one of my personal interpretation of trolls which is quite Bauer-influenced.

I’ll take a better photo some day, I just have to re-attach some of their horns which they dropped during an exhibit. :[
