Helene masters the technique of "captive rings" masterfully. The Mader Helene Spinning Tops are worked out in one piece of wood and thus remain connected forever. Their gyros are unique and consist of only one piece of very fine grained apple wood.
Diameter 4.8 cm
Made in Austria.
Mader Kreiselmanufaktur was founded in 1991 by Klaus Mader, a very skilled carpenter with a love for handcrafted wooden toys. He has a small but mighty workshop found in the foothills of the Austrian Alps which hand makes not only traditional spinning tops but also skipping ropes, kaleidoscopes and yo-yos. Each spinning top is painstakingly made by hand, often by Klaus himself, out of locally sourced wood with some tops requiring up to 20 different stages such as wood turning, burning, embossing, carving, brushing, painting and varnishing. One can’t help but admire the attention to detail in every creation.
