A themed checkers set that doubles as a minature zen garden while the board is inactive. It's frame is hand made from natural redwood and is held together with 45 degree mitered joints for a more seamless apperance. The Rake was designed to form the grid with one horizontal and one verticle stroke through the sand. It could then be flipped over to clear the board with one stroke. The pieces are dark and light river stones which represent sky and earth in zen culture. This piece was featured at the Art Directors Club under the class of Kevin O' Callaghan of SVA in March 2014.
