Hand-carved spinning tops

At likemind on Friday I met a Thomas Forsyth, a recent graduate from Brighton Uni’s design dept. who hand-carves wooden spinning tops.  You push a pencil through the rubber grommet and spin it in your hands, it wanders over a sheet of paper making lovely pictures:

His business cards are lovely – they’re cut from a large piece of card where he’s run the spinning top (using pencil) many times so they’re scrawled with spirograph-like lines on nice textured card…all very tactile and real.
