This Kaleidoscope by Sue Rioux designs is called Cabernet named after the wonderful purple hues found in the wine. The oil filled glass cell is easy to turn with its rounded edge square glass knobs. The cell holds bits of iridescent dichroic glass pieces, beads, wire and small baubles in luscious shades of grape, plum, lilac and pink.
Hand selected stained glass is cut to create this scopes' beautiful iridescent purple exterior. Each piece varies slightly in color, texture and striations on each scope created. Exterior details include purple glass rods along the top side edges and a shimmery dichroic glass accent bead nestled on the top front edge. All the soldering has a copper colored patina, decorative copper beads and little feet are added to the bottom.
This Kaleidoscope is 6" x 3" x 1" and has a dual mirror system with two separate viewing ports.
View One: 2-mirror system interior has a black tunnel frame to an ever changing mandala shape view at the end.
View Two: 3-mirror system interior has a full field kaleidoscopic view.
Each kaleidoscope is signed and dated by the artists.
