This is our Story -
The Holy Rollers marble project is the brainchild of Tom Stanton and
Curt Walton. The marbles come from Holy City, CA, a small town that
decades ago was the host to hundreds of religious fanatics--hence the
name, Holy City, and our HOLY ROLLERS.
We hope to introduce "Holy Rollers" at the toy convention in New York
City in February of 2013, and we need your help! We want to bring back
the game of marbles to the youth of the world, with the hope that
playing face-to-face, tactile games will give our children something to do besides play video games.
Our Kickstarter goal is $5,000 but we don't want to stop there. The more we collect, the better our worldwide launch will be at the toy convention in February.
For a $15 dollar pledge, we will send you this beautiful,
hand-signed original painting created by Tom Stanton exclusively for
For a pledge of $35 you will receive the bag of marbles below along with the other gifts described on the right column.
Pledges of $125 and $250 will bring you the custom, hand-made glass
marbles from Holy City! These are rare, LIMITED EDITIONS and no more
will be made or sold except for the ones received by our generous
donors. An incredible offer for true collectors!
For $400, we present our spectagular "EARTH MARBLE." This limited edition of only 50 marbles will be numbered and signed by the artists at Holy City. They are hand-formed and hand colored with continents, oceans, and clouds--all in separate layers--bringing you a three dimensional view of our planet on a beautiful 2-1/2" glass orb. Don't miss out on these fabulous and incredibly rare collectibles!
For $600 we offer a marble making course for 2. For $1500 we offer a marble making party for 4.
Our classes are an extraordinary opportunity to learn the art of
making marbles yourself. Whether it is with one of your friends or
three of them, we will make sure that you will have an evening to
remember. The marble designs and colors will be completely customized
by you--making this the ultimate personal experience. A "bucket-list"
For $3500 we offer you the ultimate art glass marble making experience!For those of your outside of the San Francisco Bay Area, glass artists Curt Walton and Tom Stanton will travel cross-country to the nearest metropolitan area, where you and one of your friends will enjoy a full day of instructional glass blowing at a glass studio, and even create your own set of marbles to take home. You will also receive a beautiful DVD shot during the day and edited into a keepsake of your experience.
We would appreciate your help getting our Holy Rollers to the Toy Convention in 2013. Please help us out with this unique, worthwhile project and enjoy your unique hand-made marble rewards!
