Jolie Signorile and Gabriel Cohen are the artists behind Fredericks & Mae, an art and design company in Brooklyn founded in 2007. Bound by a passion for materials such as natural fibers, threads, clay, pigment, and wood, they innovate and create a unique assortment of decorative and playful things. These marbles are classically handmade of clay and are colorfully pigmented.
The oldest marbles originated in the Harappan civilization in Pakistan near the river Indus as early as 2600 BC. This classic toy represents human civilization for thousands of years and our playful pastimes.
