Wow! This chess set by Laura Cowan is definitely one of a kind! Each piece was put into consideration, with the unique designs of each matching up with Laura's motif: rocket shapes, disks and cones. With each player is a thoughtful explanation of its design, as well as special effects and stones in some of them. In designing this set, Laura used high precision computer aided cutting, hand piercing (sawing with a jewelers blade), filing and polishing.
