I call this chess set

Fantasy Creatures

The main inspiration for the characters came from Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and the Narnia Chronicles, many thanks  to the vivid imaginations of J R R Tolkien, J K Rowling and C S Lewis. Some came simply from my own imagination.

The set was made from Keanes white and terra cotta stoneware paper clay. The pawns were bisque fired and  then glazed with a clear earthenware glaze while the larger pieces had decorative details picked out using gold lustre glaze.
