Blackened Bronze Beast
The humble spinning top is one of mankind’s oldest toys and exists in different forms all over the world. And now this millennia-old design has been given a facelift and transformed into an elevated work of art in the form of the J.L. Lawson & Co. Blackened Bronze Top.
Manually machined from solid bar stock for the best results, each top comes with a ceramic ball that is press-fitted into the tip for extra precision and performance. The solid bronze body offers incredible durability, balance and hand-feel. It is further blackened with subtle removal to facilitate the gradual wear and patina over time.
Owing to the fine balance and careful design, the spin times are impressive and averages for at least 6 minutes, and with practice, a mind-boggling 10 minutes is within reach.
Each Bronze Top is individually machined in Joshua Tree, California by Anthony Lawson himself, who first learned to operate the lathe from his father, who used to work as a machinist. Anthony is now carrying on the family heritage, and reviving a dying trade, by combining the exceptional skills of his forebears with a modern aesthetic and twist.
