Hallucinogenic Designs Formed Inside Handmade Glass Marbles


Marble artist Mike Gong creates beautifully detailed designs inside of small, handmade glass marbles. He pays close attention to detail to get every single element just right within the round interior of glass, and each of his creative concepts tells a crazy little story.

Gong produces mesmerizing clouds of color, texture, and patterns that seem out of this world. No two pieces are alike and, as you turn each marble around, the various details and unusual elements change color and sparkle in the reflecting light.

In particular, his Acid Eaters collection features wacky little faces that have big smiles, swirling eyes, and tongues sticking out of their mouths. Inside of the thick glass, hallucinations come alive and the happy guys appear distorted as viewers spin the glass around in their hands.

All of these impressive marbles are available for sale, with prices ranging from a few hundred dollars to heftier price tags of more than $1,000. You can see a live video of some marbles below and you can check out a variety of Gong’s designs on Not Just Marbles.
