Red standing swirl meeple

This large, 3" (7.5cm) filigree swirled red meeple statue is made from hand-wound 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.

Your meeple will be similar, but not the exact one in the picture. Every time I create one, the designs are a bit different!

The beautiful filigree technique takes several hours to complete, from creating the clay's 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 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.
