New Mosaic - Backgammon Set

Luis has just completed making this Backgammon Board. It is made from marble and limestone. It took many hours to hand-cut each tesserae and place them within the design. The board is made in the indirect method and it is always stressful towards the end hoping and praying that the cement has not dislodged any of the marble. Thankfully this piece turned out well. After cleaning, grouting and polishing it is ready to be mounted into an outdoor or indoor table or used as is.

The wooden counters and shakers were commissioned from a wood-turner  The pieces are turned in chestnut and oak.

This set was made as a present to celebrate a special event.
