Sanfilippo Chess Series
Reading, PA

I am a free spirit who enjoys the beauty and challenges that life brings.  Since I was a youngster I have always wanted to make my own chess sets and after years of trying I am finally able to make a chess set series that I am very proud of.  As a craftsman and a chess player myself, my goal is to continue to grow as a creator and to make top of the line chess sets.

Each set contains pieces that are individually hand-sculpted from terra cotta, bisque fired to cone B6, and is painted with Windsor and Newton Acrylic Paints. There is only one original for each set in this series and every single piece is unique.
