His twin, Jonah Hill, is a silversmith, but Greg is known for his toys, especially wooden tops, colored in vibrant colors.
This sprightly example has a shapely form, carved from cottonwood, as is traditional for the Hopi.
Greg says, “A top is one of the few toys that have the same method of play around the world,” and is something that brings people together.
He adds, “I’m making joy.” Certainly, we all smile at the sight of the bright, happy colors on this finely carved top.
Fun to play with, lovely to look at, and well-designed, this top can be played with, or just admired – that’s up to you.
