Game of Kings is a chess set, comprised of clear resin silhouettes of a king with smaller pieces inside, showing the idea of an ideal figure through chess.

Game of Kings is a new spin on traditional chess pieces. Game of Kings visually illustrates the role the King has within the game. By making every piece a transparent outline of a king, the project shows how each piece has this larger image to live up to. Each clear king has the actual piece, scaled down from their normal size within. Each part is made using a wood positive to create a negative mold, which is then filled with resin. Before the resin is cured, the smaller, SLA printed piece is placed within. Once cured the final part is sanded and polished.
