Thank you to everyone who pointed out I forgot THE most important photo from the Choosing a Supported Spindle episode of The Peahen’s Ponderings.
You asked for it; here it is.
The world’s most beautiful Spanish Peacock Tibetan spindle and bowl.
The shaft is ebony. The whorl and the bowl are both amboyna burl.
I am currently designing a humidity controlled, hermetically sealed clear acrylic case with a stand specifically for this one-of-a-kind masterpiece… ok, not really. After all, I may find fiber worth of spinning on it someday!
