Donna Haines Chess Piece Process

Since childhood, I've always loved drawing, clay work, and working with textiles. I love reflecting and blending images from the natural world and cultural and historical research, including repeating patterns, geometry, kaleidoscopic imagery, tesselations and the personal interests of myself and others. Working from inspiration to a finished piece, I experience excitement, anticipation, challenge, deep engagement, opportunities, and finally, gratification. I love every part of the art making process!

A step by step presentation describing the planning, research, drafting, and plotting for accurate dimensions, proportions and details of the six chess pieces, including the process of making a two part mold to replicate each piece.
