“Although I initially started studying and drawing old whorls with bird, human and animal forms,” Susan Point explains, “I have always admired the old whorls with simple geometric and floral imagery.”
With no end and no beginning, this carved glass spindle whorl illustrates the unwavering passing of time. Point also earlier depicted the same design in a limited edition serigraph of the same title. Each geometric moment on the whorl is identical to the one before it and the one that follows. Whether the marks indicate seconds, days, years or millennia, the pace never changes regardless of the culture it is being measured in.
“It amazes me,” Point admits, “how many of these motifs and symbols decorate early ornaments and objects globally.”
