Feastware for Uluric de Exeforde

Over the summer, I completed a commission for Uluric de Exeforde where he requested his device and badge on a set of plates. I drafted up a couple of designs to unify the set, he picked his favorite and I set to work painting!

I’m happy with how the set turned out, but the yellow could have used an extra 3 or 4 coats of paint.

Below are pictures of the work I have completed thus far:

Paint your own pottery

I have also been going to a local paint-your-own-pottery studio and creating works of art! Ok, well, they’re decent, but not quite works of art. I started with a plate and bowl for myself, then moved on to gifts for others.

Below are pictures from this past Saturday, East Kingdom’s Twelfth Night, where I presented the King and Queen with plates of their arms:
