A few days ago a woman found my Aurora Australis earring disks on Etsy and wrote to me.

She is a spinner of wool and wanted me to make her a diz* that looked like my earring disks. Many emails ensued and today I made her the diz at the top of this post.

I textured the top of the diz with a mold I’d made from a Malaysian palm and after curing, painted it with iridescent paints and cured it again.

*A diz is a curved disk with small holes in it. It is used to select the longest fibers from a mass of wool fibers, so that they the long fibers can be spun into a strong yarn.

Here is the back of her diz:

The diz is 2 1/2″ across and 1/4″ thick. I left the back very plain so that no paint would rub off on the wool.

I look forward to hearing from her about how it works for her.
