  1. beautiful work… very exotic. marble machines are such a quandary – fascinating to watch, inherently useless, and everyone thinks they know how to make them better… those with the precision and skill to build them never want to let their creations go, despite having created a contraption with no apparent purpose other than to enthrall it’s viewer. perhaps i will get ahold of one someday, somehow… im much too intellectually lazy :) but, beauitful work – i love it!
