Description

The pentagram represents the spirit, water, fire, earth, and air. It is a symbol of faith, and has a very rich history. Mathematically, it follows the golden ratio. No matter how you look at it, the pentagram is a fascinating symbol/geometric shape that will satisfy your inner faith(s), whether they be religious or STEM.

The beauty of an open whorl spindle like this is that you can see the fruits of your labor, colors spinning wildly, mesmerizing you. It is soothing and hypnotic all at once.

What sets Metis Industries spindles apart from other spindles is their physics and how they were designed. These spindles are designed to spin for a long time. This is because their moment of inertia is high. Because the whorls are 3D printed, they are precisely weighted and this contributes to the balance of our spindles. Further, they were created with math. I use a program called OpenSCAD to write the code to generate the whorls for 3D printing. Up in the photos section, you can see the 3D generated image of the whorl.

The shaft is mineral oil treated oak. It is ready to paint or wood burn; it is just waiting for you to unleash your imagination!

If you need more than available in this listing or other colors, please feel free to contact with me for a custom order!

Shaft: 10.5" / 26.7 cm
Whorl: 3 1/8" / 7.9 cm
Weight: 0.63 oz / 18 g

Note: Because these are handmade, shaft lengths may vary by a couple mm and weights may vary between spindles by a gram or so. Whorl sizes are always consistent with the size listed. This listing is for one spindle in your choice of listed color only. Colors may vary between monitors and the 3D rendered image of the whorls are a general example of color tweaked as carefully as possible to be accurate. If the color you want is not shown in an actual photograph and is in stock, please contact me and I will send you an actual photo. If it is NOT in stock, please contact me and I will send you an actual photo of the plastic filament used to produce the whorls. Thanks!
