Unique Recycled Auto Part Chess Set, "Recycling Challenge" - Quick Ship
An industrial approach to a classic game comes to life in this Unique Recycled Auto Part Chess Set as the imaginative mind of Armando Ramírez transforms scrap metal into a sleek, black and silver chess set.
Ramirez presents us with his "Recycling Challenge" as he collects the leftover metal pieces off a die machine and shapes them into the pawns, horses, and parts of the kings, which also feature cogs from a car's electrical system. The queens are made from screws, cogs and bearings from a car's electrical system. The bishops are shaped from sparkplugs and the towers from cogwheels. The board is made from a metal sheet and features ornate iron wires and bendix caps taken from a car's electrical system.
Please note it is the artist's intention not to give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
This Recycled Auto Part Chess Set is sure to make an impression on the recipient and onlookers. It will be a great display piece when not in use. You can't go wrong with this industrial art decor piece. Chess anyone?
