Canterbury Chess Set

This is my favorite design. I read the history of the Canterbury Cathedral and actually visited several years ago. So the king and queen are designed after the north and south ends of the cathedral. The Knight is a saddle recognizing william the conqueror who won the battle of hastings nearby. The rook is a reproduction of the actual ruin of the canterbury cathedral. This was fun to design, it's fun to cut and it's absolutely striking to see.
