Mike Gong's Surreal Marbles


Marble with a face design inside

 

Psychadelic little faces stare out from the glass spheres created by Mike Gong. How have I been ignorant to the fact that people make beautiful artwork inside marbles? These little guys are positively luminous and look as though they are about to let out a psychotic little giggle at any moment. I loved marbles as a kid, considered them a treasured object - not just a great schoolyard game. I would have been very unhappy to loose my marbles to another school kid if they were this incredibly cute. Too heartbreaking!
