Creativity, Spinning

On Why Spinning is Art

Comment by Angus on History Has Been Woven by a Stick – The Astonishing Drop Spindle, on April 27, 2010.  This is too good to miss!

Angus says,

Beautiful and functionalSpinning is Art.

Art is, at its most beautiful, best, intrinsic essence, three things:

1. useful


2. metaphorical


3. a reflection of God

When useful, art stops being a thing to view, and begins to be a part of us.


When metaphorical, art is both the thing at hand, and a representation of greater things.


When a reflection of God, it is a humble desire to be more like Him. He is, after all, the Creator; the Artist.

I too, am flabbergasted.

  1. My son said to me the other day, “Isn’t is amazing how the pupil of our eye works?” and without us ever even thinking about it! More of His mind boggling artistry… they’re even surrounded by that exquisite iris, and each one unique.
