Which is Real?

Contact Carl

Welcome to:

New for 2024, Carl will start signing his marbles with a green "cf" logo. Carl started making marbles in 2006 and began signing them in January of 2008. Every two years, the logo color changes. In 2008 and 2009, the color was gold. In 2010 and 2011, the color was silver. In 2012 and 2013, the color was black. In 2014 and 2015, the color was white. In 2016 and 2017, the color was yellow. In 2018 and 2019, the color was red. In 2020 and 2021, the color was blue. And in 2022 and 2023, the color was purple. These colorful logos help collectors date when the marble was made.

New for 2024... Restored Glass Marbles!

For years, Carl has been creating beautiful vintage-looking marbles from polymer clay. Now, Carl is now able to make damaged vintage glass marbles look new again. Carl developed a unique and specialized process to coat his polymer clay marbles with a thin, crystal clear, and durable resin. Now, that same process can be applied to glass marbles. The results are amazing! Dull, chipped, and scratched marbles can be restored to an original wet mint looking condition allowing the inner beauty of the marble to shine through. Look at the before and after photos above of an antique 1" German divided core marble. Which one would you prefer to display in your collection? The answer is clear. For more information on having your badly damaged marbles restored, just contact Carl.

Continuing for 2024... Clear Marbles!

New advancements in UV cured resins allow Carl's polymer clay designs to be completely embedded in a thick coating of crystal clear resin. The resulting lensing effect is just like that of clear glass. This opens up a whole new world of marble types which can be created like sulphides, solid core swirls, sparklers, and more. These new resins let the light shine through and make beautiful new millefiore and paperweight marbles possible. Look for lots of new and exciting marbles from Carl in 2024 using crystal clear resins.

"The History and Art of Marbles" exhibit is now history.
It was on display from November 7, 2015 until January 17, 2016
at the Temecula Valley Museum, 28314 Mercedes Street, Temecula, CA 92590.

The exhibit included many large colorful panels that detailed the history of marbles from their early beginnings as simple rounded stones to the complex and beautiful creations of today's contemporary marble artists. The exhibit featured marbles from Carl's personal collection of vintage and contemporary glass marbles as well as a case full of his polymer clay mimics and contemporary art clay marbles. To see photos from the exhibit, click on the "Museum Show" link at the upper left of this page. For more information on the exhibit you can also visit temeculavalleymuseum.org.

Have you lost your marbles? Are you having difficulty finding more of what you want? Are you missing that last ultra-rare Peltier NLR to complete your collection? Need one more Christensen Guinea to fill up a box? How about a nice 2" black and white Clambroth? Let Carl make one for you. Whatever you need is just an email away. Below is just a quick sample of what can be done. Take a look at these Superman marbles:

The one in the center is a real 5/8" glass Peltier NLR Superman from Carl's personal collection. The rest are some of Carl's 3/4" polymer clay mimics. All the mimics are half the weight of glass and signed under the glaze.

How about a nice set of Christensen Flame Mimics?

Here's How It Works!

Just email Carl a picture of a marble that is similar to the one you need, include the size you want, what colors you want it to be, and any other special details. Carl will do his best to recreate it in polymer clay. Then, Carl will send you a picture of it. If it meets your expectations, he'll send it to you for an in-hand review. If you're not totally happy with it, you can return it for a full refund, or he will try again. For a fraction of the cost of the real thing, you could be enjoying a nice polymer clay version of it right now. You have nothing to lose. If you're not sure what you need, just check out the Recent Sales Marble Gallery by Clicking here. Click on the individual images to enlarge them.

As always, each marble is designed and individually handmade from polymer clay. There are no paints or colored markers ever used. The colors are created by blending the standard polymer clay colors together into an almost unlimited palette. The designs are carefully created by meticulously stretching, rolling and forming the clay until the desired pattern is achieved. Each design is unique and each marble is an individual work of art.

Carl's marbles are lighter than glass marbles and softer to the touch. Yet, they are extremely durable and will not chip, crack, or break. You can even carry them around with you in your pocket all day long.

If you like collecting vintage machine-made marbles like the National Line Rainbows (NLR) from the Peltier Glass Company, or Christensen Agate Company Flames and Striped Opaques, you'll like collecting Carl's hand-made contemporary mimics. They can be used as placeholders in your collection until real ones come along. That's the reason Carl started making marbles in the first place... because he couldn't find (or afford) the real thing.
