This exquisite Turkish weaving shuttle is made of wood, horn, lead, and bronze mounted on a contemporary custom steel stand. It is a beautifully formed sculpture that developed further character with age and use. From the stand height, the shuttle casts geometric shadows extending its presence. Textile weaving is one of the most ancient crafts in Turkey, and the implements to create them were fine. A skilled artisan may once have used this shuttle as she wove her colorful creations, the polished surface gliding easily through her loom’s weft.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
