Click here to see it working! Yes, the wheel is actually being used to spin yarn and you can see it in action.

It's for sale too. Just as well it would not fit in with my decor (or lack of it!). Mind you, I doubt it would fit in with my budget, either.

That is incredible! Mother-of-all, maidens, footman, treadle, bobbin, and wheel! All glass! Is it all molded glass or blown? It took my breath away. Andy Paiko -- I'm going to do some serious googling in a little while (after I go back for another look at that magnificent wheel, and get some website info on him. Thank you so much for linking us!

Thank you so much for linking to this, Kathy. I was lucky enough to see the wheel in person a few months ago and it is astoundingly beautiful.

I really wish the video had sound--I'd love to hear the wheel while it's moving.

This is so awesome and magnificent. I suddenly have a vision of a big room (and big house of course), with light parquet flooring, gleaming, lotsa light, and the glass wheel by itself in a nice corner.
I think I need such house if I want this wheel.

That girl has balls of steel. I'd be terrified to get within five feet of that thing - SMASH!

It is really a thing of beauty in motion, isn't it!
