Handcrafted in rural Shropshire, England, from sustainably harvested hardwood, this combination twine stand and cutter is as practical as it is handsome, making it ideal for the serious gardener. The hand turned, white oak holder handily accommodates the oversized ball of pure jute twine, while the traditional bishop’s hat finial houses a built-in cutter. Comes with one ball of twine, refills are available.
The radiometer is an instructive object which demonstrates the scientific theory of converting natural light into energy. Powered only by light itself, it will spin slowly in low light conditions, furiously in direct sunlight or well-lit rooms up to 2000 revolutions per minute. It remains unresponsive to fluorescent light. Science lesson aside, this blown glass radiometer functions as an engaging and sculptural object in its own right. Made in Germany.
