I want so much more than they've got planned

So I'm going to be doing this church thing this Christmas called A Night in Bethlehem. It's basically going to be lots of different people doing historically accurate things from biblical Israel. I volunteered to be a woman spinning, because I'm a geek like that. Tongue I'm going to be preparing my natural brown and white merino to spin, I'm making a spindle to match the types they used at the time, but while doing my research I came across something pretty awesome.

It's a bowl that they use to keep yarns separate while they're plying, or just to hold onto their fiber. The book I found it in called it a spinning bowl, and I found a copy of it on Wikipedia. It's basically got this McDonald's symbol 3D on the bottom so it's like two arches.



Anyone know where I could get one of those? I've checked around etsy, but all I can find is supported spindle accessories. This spindle's more like a navajo spindle, and they don't actually touch the bowl. The bowl is kind of a distaff, I guess you could say.

I would think it would be easier to make one. Maybe with DAS air dry clay for weight.

Know any potters?  Does the local high school have an art department that works in fired clay?

Oh, that makes sense, to just make one. Ha. I'm smart, considering my best friend's mom is into ceramics. *Facepalm*

LOL!

You would have figured it out as soon as you talked to your mother ....

Just a reminder to all, "Call your Mother!"
