Willy Wonka's Everlasting Gobstopper Machine

Here is a rolling ball (actually Gobstopper!) machine inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This amazing piece was made by Sophie Catherine Naylor for the Newcastle-Under-Lyme Art Gallery and Museum's summer exhibition 2010. The Gobstopper machine/marble-run is operated by a push button switch, which activates a motor that pumps the Gobstoppers around the 8 various runs. The machine is roughly 150cm x 100cm x 100cm in size.

To view photos and videos of the entire exhibition visit Sophie Catherine Naylor's web site.
