wasserwerk / water marble run


‘wasserwerk’ is a marble run for the bowl. First physical understandings, material experience and creativity are trained while playing. The additional elements and it's flexibility give room for creative water plays and interesting marble runs. With watercolors or cracking noise for the bath the marble run changes into an experiment lab.
Depending on the construction of the pipes the balls are going fast, slow, noisy, or silent into the water or the next element. The net “sammler” is for keeping the components and can also used as a dip net. The waterwheel and the two into each other fitting test tubes complete the ‘wasserwerk'.
