My Inspiration

a note from the artist

"Creating a meaningful gift for my son - who taught me to play chess - ignited my creative obsession.  I find endless inspiration in the beauty that emerges from repurposing and upcycling unexpected objects, imbuing each with new function as part of a cohesive composition for mindful play.  Each Griffith Chess (or Checker) set design is a labor of love months in the making. You will own a one-of-its-kind design, a work of art that invites appreciation."
