SÉL’SELTN—Spindle Whorl (Squamish) QÁQLEQSTEN—Spinning Wool Instrument (Lil’wat) The spindle whorl was used to spin animal and bast fibers into yarn for weaving, and was a vital tool for societies that place great value in their textiles. Spindle whorls were often offered as a gift to the weaver and their designs were a labour of love sometimes used to tell family stories. Designs blend together while spinning and it’s possible that this could indicate purification and might have signified the spindle whorl’s importance in transforming wool into wealth.
Each piece is molded and cast individually, therefore no two are alike. Variations in surface texture, shading, bubbles and various other inconsistencies are the character and the natural beauty of cast glass and are not to be considered flaws or defects.
