MASTERPIECE IN WOOD
The concentric design is highly complex, with the circles comprising hundreds of slices of wood, selected according to the direction and quality of the grain. Each piece is cut by the marquetry artist so that the patterning on the woods radiates outwards within the circle, highlighting the juxtaposition between the different woods and grains.
A GAME OF EMOTIONS
Like the growth rings that tell the age of a tree or the ripples when a stone is dropped in water, Alexandra’s radiating concentric circles reflect the hypnotic pull of gaming – that whirling vortex of emotions you experience when you are fully concentrating, inescapably absorbed in the moment.
COLOUR AND CONTRAST
Expertly aligned to intersect the concentric circles without interrupting their flow, the triangles on the playing surface are crafted from different inlaid natural woods – sycamore, ash, fumed eucalyptus, American black walnut and walnut burr – selected by Alexandra to contrast with the vibrant coloured woods on the board.
