These 3" decor meeples, with their swirly filigree, are just over 3" (7.5cm) from toe to head. They are made from hand-coiled polymer clay strands that are arranged in swirls and swoops across the surface of a giant (about the size of a normal eating apple) wooden "meeple" -- the icon of board games and European-style gaming. You will receive the meeple in the pictures.
The beautiful filigree technique takes several hours to complete, from creating the clay's ombre color gradient, to hand-twisting the swirls and circles to make the design, adhering them to the meeple base, and finally glazing them to make the metallic undertones and pattern really shine. The finished product is not particularly fragile, though I would not recommend it as a toy for children.
This would be perfect as a paperweight, decor item in your game room, starting player token, stocking stuffer for a board game lover, or any number of other uses.
We also have filigree meeples available in other colors.
