It has been a few weeks since Arts Walk and I almost forgot that my chess set was included in an article in the Olympian.
A twist on chess
When he received a chessboard with no pieces, Chris Gizzi of Olympia wanted to make his own. But what he envisioned — pieces that incorporated spiraling double and triple helixes — would have been so difficult to fabricate that he set the idea aside. Now, thanks to the increased availability of 3D printing, he’s put his own twist on traditional pieces. See Gizzi’s work — along with paintings by Lonnie L. Spikes Jr. and Steven Suski — at Hot Toddy, 410 Capitol Way S. Hot Toddy also will host music by The Open Letters at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
