We’re excited to announce that we now have a custom set of five 12″pleather giant pillow dice for rent. They were made by local artisan Dana Spittal. Here are some of her process photos. When I first hired her we had to figure out the best way to make the giant dice. We needed to ensure that the seams were going to look good and the box would be cubed properly. The first prototype that Dana sent over had really small dots that had been hand cut and it was pretty obvious that they had. So I asked for bigger dots and Dana took it upon herself to find someone with a circular stamp that could be used. The dots have been glued on with rubber cement and each is filled with 2.5 lbs of stuffing.
We are considering getting some foam cubes for the very centre to lighten the dice up a bit for children’s game play, but for now, the dice are suitable for 8 years and up. We also have giant pencils for scorekeeping!
