‘Champion’ Toy Set
A re-interpretation of the traditional Spinning Top and Ball & Cup, hand turned from stainless steel and bronze.
Despite originally being intended for children, they rekindle an intuitive joy in anyone who recognises their familiar forms.
Inspired by the following quote from ‘Danny, the Champion of the World’ by Roald Dahl:
“…before I could walk, the workshop had been my play-room”. ”My toys were the greasy cogs and springs and pistons that lay around all over the place, and these, I can promise you, were far more fun to play with than most of the plastic stuff children are given these days”.
The top is best spun with two hands!
