Canyon Chess and Checkers

Marlo Bartels, 1981

Laguna Beach artist Marlo Bartels had no idea that this ceramic tile game table and chairs, created for Main Beach would become his signature and a city land mark. Working in ceramics, Marlo shapes, forms and glazes each element by hand before assembling them.
