Timeless Treasures: your next dice set could be... Ceramic?
This is a community submitted press release.

It might seem strange to consider ceramic as a material for your TTRPG accessories. However, the fact is that clay has been a staple dice material for many millennia. There are even surviving examples in museums today. Not only is ceramic archival, but it's stronger than you might think.

@claywarforge The hammering will not stop until people stop asking me if my ceramic dice are durable enough to roll. 🤣 #ttrpgtiktok #ttrpg #dnd #dndtiktok #dicetok #dice ♬ original sound - Fighting Chance Studio

Part of the charm of handmade ceramics is the slight variations and irregularities. It seems like many dice collectors, that are averse to handmade dice, are obsessed with the idea of "balanced" dice. Ceramic dice fly in the face of that, almost embracing the fact that they aren't perfect. Because up until recent history, dice weren't balanced at all. Besides, when playing a collaborative storytelling game, how important are perfectly balanced dice anyway?

Pictured are ceramic dice made with wild Pennsylvania clay, embellished with real gold.

The artist behind Fighting Chance Studio has been making glazed ceramic dice since 2020. They are a classically trained artist from Penn State University, who is absolutely obsessed with everything pen and paper.
