DESCRIPTION

Ed. of 4 + 1 AP

Llewellyn creates a limited edition backgammon board for Courbet and The Surf Club inspired by Miami's iconic flamingo representation and the city's green and pink color palette. The custom marquetry design uses inlaid wood to reflect the light in different ways as well as mother of pearl details on a sycamore background. Playing pieces are made of mother of pearl to reflect the glamour of the Miami Beach seaside and malachite stone, the most expensive semi precious stone. The box is made from London Oak tree.

The playing pieces are malachite and mother of pearl inlaid in brass; the shakers are also calf leather with inside lips to ensure fair and random rolls of the precision laser cut dice. The doubling die is weighted leather.

Chips available in semi-precious stones, wood, leather and bespoke materials upon request.

Introduced as a child to backgammon in the alleys of Cairo by her Egyptian step-grandfather, Alexandra's appreciation for the game and the inherent beauty of the board grew over the years.

After training as a fine artist in Leeds and the University of California, Santa Barbara, Alexandra in 2007 returned to London to head product development for The Prince's School of Traditional Arts. Founded by the Prince of Wales, the school aims to preserve and teach traditional craftsmanship techniques. During this time, Alexandra's interest in traditional craft, contemporary art and cutting-edge technology flourished, leading her in 2010 to design backgammon boards. This incredibly traditional pastime was the perfect way for Alexandra to express her love of materials, with wooden designs featuring beautifully textured feathers, antlers, butterflies, palm trees and vintage nude images.
