Blake, No, I wish I could take credit for the sculpture. My nephew does Rolling Ball Sculptures for his home business. All I can take credit for is the 6’ Walnut Ring…...........

I became aware of marble machines three or four years ago, and was fascinated by the engineering. It’s all beyond my ken. I, however, needed to prove that to myself, so I built a marble pump that sorta works. That’s as far as I got. You have an incredibly inventive mind. Two things I’ve never seen: a marble machine that includes vertical loops; a marble machine on LJs. Bravo on both counts.
