current rolling ball projects

For all you rolling ball sculpture fans, we have just released the first of our industrial styled sculptures! The new style of desktop sculpture uses a single tipping arm to subsequently release the next marble. The base is a heavy steel cog and this sculpture has the letter "R" welded to it as the frame for the sculpture. Sculptures can be commissioned with the letter of your choice as the frame.

The video and photo of the new sculpture can be seen here.

other rolling ball information

Rolling ball sculptures are displayed in many museums and art galleries world wide. In 2007 a large rolling ball sculpture was featured in the movie ‘Fracture’, starring Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling. The rolling ball sculpture, approx 6ft high by 6ft wide was built with shiny metallic tracks and carved wooden wheels. Small glass balls skittered and rolled in an elaborately choreographed dance - a beautiful piece of precision machinery and impressive kinetic art.

welcome

Welcome to rolling ball sculptures designed and created by David Morrell. Avid Creations is a company based in Adelaide, South Australia, and are able to supply rolling ball sculptures world wide. Through our website you are able to view and purchase existing sculptures that we have designed and developed, or alternatively contact us for further information regarding commissioning a sculpture of your own design.

A rolling ball sculpture is a series of tracks where a marble or ball makes it's way along, through, over, under, around and down the sculpture. Along it's path the marbles pass through 'track components' which either slow, speed up, or purely entertain the user. Track components for example may include loops or tipping arms.

Design plays an important role in the development of the sculptures, and there are an infinite number of design possibilities for any one sculpture.

The sculptures are great for children (over 3's) and also the perfect gift for that person who thinks they have everything.

If you wonder how David started building Rolling Ball Sculptures watch the video below for an insight.
