Jelle’s Passion

My biggest passion is making Marble Machines and Rolling Ball Sculptures, the marbles speeds through the tracks hitting bells, chimes, nails, woodblocks. My Marble Machines differs from other ones because of a cacaphony of sounds produced from the marbles and moving parts like tipovers, seesaws, levers and unique track parts like jumps, loops, funnels, pinball courses and more. My Marble Machines commonly made from wood.

My biggest milestone was setting the guiness record for the Longest Marble Run in 2009, unfortnately, it’s now broken by someone else. In 2012 i start building my first international project outside of the Benelux in the MAD Museum in Stratford upon Avon (UK), after it’s succes a second machine from me is now exhibited inside the darkroom, a Rolling Ball Machine with glowing balls lit by uv-LED’s.

But nowadays, I do mostly marble racing including the MarbleLympics and Sand Marble Rally, these videos are very succesful and attracts large numbers of viewers and subscribers on my Youtube Channel. However, I still like to build “regular” marble runs as described above.

Commission a work

If you want a fascinating Marble Machine you can commission a Marble Machine from me for your museum, exhibition, gallery, shopping mall to attract more people. Not only children but also adults are fascinated by my work. In the MAD Museum (Stratford upon Avon), my “Marble MADhouse” is one of the most popular pieces inside that museum!

I also accept international orders, i like traveling so i will make the journey to the destination of my work. For small machines (max 50 X 50 cm) i can take the machine as baggage, for larger projects, international shipping is required.
