Senseless ball machine (rolling ball sculpture) Number Three!
I made this one for my nephew for Christmas. He's only five, and I suspect he may kill the poor thing eventually, but he loves playing with them so much I couldn't resist giving him one. I had my dad make the wood base for it out of spalted maple. This was a sort of rush job that I initiated during an art event challenge earlier in the year, but after taking it back to the shop and working out some bugs I think it has turned out quite nicely. Sorry, but I don't have a video camera for motion shots!
