Entry Description

The Illusion Spinner is an unglazed, bone china spinner that is currently sold by the Museum of Modern Art and associated retailers in 33 countries around the world.

Engraved on the spinner is a floral-spiral pattern which when spun, captures your mind through the combination of the whispery sea-shell sound of the ocean and a mesmerizing optical illusion.

Intended for creatives, the Illusion seeks to spark creativity by providing brief meditative breaks that stimulate divergent thinking, which is a style of thinking that generates an abundant amount of ideas.
