Welcome to Silkwood Studios!
My name is Kurt Pivko. My spindle story begins three years ago when
I began an ongoing e-mail conversation with a woman in Norway .
A long-time spinner, Susan turned me on to spindles and after making
a few for her..well the rest is history! I recently started making
supported spindles and lap bowls as well as venturing into larger
bowls and round boxes. At the moment, I am still concentrating mostly
on drop spindles...I am having too much fun playing with different
designs! Each spindle is turned by hand and thus one-of-a-kind.
I have been experimenting with different types of wood as well as
inlays and ornamental turning. I hope by now I have convinced you
to at least e-mail me at:
. I am open to new designs as well as
custom requests. Don't forget to bookmark this page and happy spinning!
