Heddle Pulley

Heddle Pulley

c. 1935


Gift of The Butkin Foundation 1970.354



Pulleys support the cords that operate men's horizontal looms. But sculptued ones do more than this. The beauty of the delicately rendered human, and bird heads and masks inspires the weaver as he works with the pulley facing him.
