Build notes

RBS 065 is called "Inspire". The lift type is an archimedes screw - the motor in the base turns the screw lift and raises the marbles up in a colorful column. 

I created RBS 065 for a very specific purpose, as a gift to someone who has inspired me greatly. As an artist I am always hoping to inspire others, just as I am inspired by others. The inspiration is always there if you are steadfastly looking for it. Giving and receiving are two sides of the same coin - one requires the other. And together they both create a happiness.

This rolling ball sculpture is signed "Jendro" in metal on the base, and also signed and numbered and dated on the reverse side of the painted panels. It can be mounted on a wall using the adjustable wall mounts on the sculpture, or it can be set on a table. It is designed to do either. This kinetic sculpture is also designed to survive shipping stresses too.
