CAIO LOCKE‘s artistic development has been influenced by the process of etching and his childhood memories of London and Rio. His works are conjured from his imagination and combine mathematical precision with abstract thought. He uses colour and form to express his personal response to the meeting of external and interior worlds. In this sense, the process has become a meditation, visionary in its merging of the spiritual and intellectual.

Our Chess Knight sculpture is 15cm in height (5.9 inches) and is hand-carved from boxwood. Each unique piece is lacquered for a lustrous finish and adorned with a Purling London leather felt.
