If you are not familiar with the fantasy mini series it is set 1200 years before The Witcher series and depicts the creation of the first Witcher and the events leading to the "Conjunction of the Spheres." Also it shows the Elven civilization of the Xin'trea kingdom before its downfall. The elf Seanchai saves Geralt of Rivia's ally Jasiker where she has him write down the untold legend of seven warriors who went up against the forces of Xin'trea following its seizure !
Many of the scenes are fast moving and dark so something that took me a week to make might be visible for a second only ! I was fully aware that the art department have thousands of props so what i made might not have even be used or that scene could be cut out ! Nevertheless i was extremely excited to devour each of the 4 episodes and managed to spot most of the things i made.
It started with a few bowls, followed by a set of 50 rectangular plates , bowls in the shape of fish , very large rough looking platters , some goblets and a lot of large rustic dinner plates . Everything had to look rustic and a bit rough as though it had been around a long time and glazed inside so the actors could safely eat and drink from them .
Blue fish plates : These were based on ancient pottery with a kind of fish mouth and tail , glazed inside with blue mottled glaze and the outside left unglazed.
I also made a brown version of this plate .
These little rustic bowls were for a cave scene .
Green rectangular plates for a harbour scene.
Next i made rustic plates for a scene with the elves.
These are the goblets i made .
