Gallery of Arms & Armour
Brian Price
aka SCA Brion Thornbird ap Rhys, Earl & Knight, OL

There is something truly magical about a knight's harness, and it has been my pleasure for many years to work with and amongst those who strive to master the armourer's art. This page began as a portfolio of pieces I had created or worked on, but it has since become something more, the start of a gallery open to armourers who wish to display their best work.

We hope to expand these pages to include fine work from some of today's best armourers. In nearly every case you will find modern elements, but each of the craftsmen featured has worked to make their pieces ever more authentic, eshewing modernisms whereever possible.

This section of the site should grow quickly as I discover ever more examples that I think are of a quality of line and craftsmanship that they should be included here. Feel free to contact the site's producers if you know of someone who should be here and who isn't. Enjoy the work!
