Welcome to The House of Brendon
The Chess-board is the world,
The pieces are the phenomena of the Universe,
The rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature.
The player on the other side is hidden from us.
(Thomas Henry Huxley)
This is just the beginning. I work in brass, exotic hardwoods and artificial ivory (Elforyn). I create beautiful, heirloom Chess sets & boards. Everything I make is designed by me, crafted by my hand with patience, care and attention; there is no CNC machine in my shop. If you believe, as I do, that hand made is best; that unique design and limited editions are best; that the craft of chess-making should be kept alive, then you have come to the right place.
