Moon Dominos 

Moon Dominos replace the classic dots (or pips), with silkscreened phases of the moon. 
The game's name comes from the pieces' resemblance to Venetian Carnival masks known as domino, which were white with black spots. These masks were so named, in turn, because they resembled French priests' winter hoods, being black on the outside and white on the inside. The oldest known domino set was found in Tutankamen's tomb, among the ruin of Thebes.

Fredericks & Mae is the art/design team of Jolie Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks Cohen. The two met through a shared love for materials - Fredericks & Mae started in the piles of feathers, thread, gold and paper that decorated their first studio in 2007. Their collaborative practice has since evolved into a series of objects for the home, garden and sky.  Fredericks & Mae is a material anthropology of objects with confused origins.  Tools, games and rituals trace arcs though history and across the earth - we follow these arcs: nose to the ground and mouths agape.
