1. This "Spinning Top" is a rather large, extracted form of the original children's toy spinning tops made on the wood lathe from solid willow burl. My goal was to give the top it's own spinning pattern and rhythm while still implying everything that is already encoded when one see's a spinning top.
    Dimensions: approx. 12"x12"x18"

My interest in our cognitive patterns and puzzles [and cognitive neurology] fuels about half of my work.
