3D Rolling Ball Maze and Mathematical Sculpture. Roll the ball along twisting stairways to the finish. Brain game, Puzzle, Artwork, gift  and desk toy.

Brand New for September 2013. This is my biggest maze yet being 8 cells wide in each direction. This makes for a maze with lots more twists and turns than any of my previous mazes. This allows for a longer path with stairway paths that go up, down and wrap around each other. This also includes features of my more expensive mazes, symmetrical patterns on several of the faces. I have also made the bars thicker and stronger than my smaller mazes. This has allowed me to sculpt out some areas on the faces of the maze to make even more interesting patterns. This is a very fast maze, so hold onto your hat for a wild ride.

Snaking Stairways
- Watch out your maze ball will take off down lots of twisting stairways. These stairs wrap around the maze in all directions. This 8x8x8 maze will take you on a wild serpentine ride to reach the finish. The dimensions of this maze are 50mm by 50mm by 50mm and the ball is 9mm in diameter.

Ethereal Maze Puzzles are mazes that you solve by rolling a ball through an innovative new three dimensional lattice structure which forms the maze paths. The goal is to roll the ball through the Labyrinth Maze from the start to the finish. An additional challenge is to navigate the ball from the finish back to the start.

Snaking Stairways
has a new feature for the start and finish points.
It has a ring with a bar through it for the starting point and a ring with a cross through it for the finish point. The ball can not be removed from the maze at the start or finish points, or any other point. This is my first maze where the maze ball is captive in the maze, but you can make the ball removable from the maze by clipping out the bar from the ring at the start point, or cutting out the cross from the ring at the finish point.

The balls can be colored with a highlighter or marker. You can hold the ball against the frame of the maze with a toothpick while inserting the tip of the marker into the maze to color the ball. Coloring the ball makes it easier to track in the Labyrinth maze.

See for yourself how Ethereal Maze Puzzles take maze puzzles to a whole new level of challenge and fun. With their convoluted lattice structure they can also be enjoyed as captivating and intriguing sculptural works of art.
