Gondola Lift “Rolling Ball” – Kinetic Sculpture

Just a Sneek Peek of the new sculpture right now.  The base is made out of a beautiful 6 x 22 inch piece of cherry hardwood and with only 1-1/2 of the four tracks done, it currently contains over 100ft of 12 gauge copper wire and 3 pounds of custom brass hardware.
