This kaleidoscope by Bob and Elissa Rioux is called Blue Ice from their Looking Glass Series.
There are round brass knobs to spin the oil filled barrel which has a mix of iridescent glass and foil bits, bright beads, dichroic glass, wire, multi colored baubles and metal bits.
Hand selected stained glass is cut to create this scopes' beautiful iridescent white exterior. Each piece varies slightly in color, texture and striations on each scope created.
Long clear Italian glass rods with vibrant cobalt cores run along the top side edges of the scope and a sparkling dichroic glass accent piece nestles on the top front edge. All the soldering has a copper colored patina, decorative copper beads and little 3 toed feet are added to the bottom.
This Kaleidoscope is 10" x 1.5" x 3" and has a large triangle viewing port.
This 2 mirror system interior is created with a blue cavern-like shimmering tunnel. A piece of dichroic glass creates a beautiful blue & white Ice crystal halo inside the kaleidoscope to frame the ever changing mandala shape view at the end.
Each kaleidoscope is signed and dated by the artists.
