Journey is a beautiful 6-sided, parlor kaleidoscope of swirled stained glass containing two mirror systems--one 2-mirror and one 3-mirror, making it two distinct kaleidoscopes in one. The barrel-shaped oil cell contains aquamarine, teal, and green glass. These colors complement its aquamarine and green glass body which is decorated with a cobalt blue dichroic accent jewel. It's attached to its own brass frame, and finished with Sue's signature patina that she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a copper effect on the eyepiece end and other adornments.
Enjoy the journey! This kaleidoscope measures 8" tall x 6" wide at the oil cell x 8-1/2" wide.
If this particular kaleidoscope style is not currently in stock, please be aware that the exact coloration and/or texture of exterior of this style may be slightly different than this photo when special ordered. Artists who work in glass typically start from very large sheets of glass whose colors, patterns, and/or texture often change and shift over the course of each sheet. Where the specific pieces of glass are cut on a sheet will determine what the end resulting kaleidoscope will look like. Also, Sue Rioux chooses to adorn her finished kaleidoscopes with varying colors of glass rods and other decorative details, depending on what she feels looks best.
Each time we receive new kaleidoscope styles for our regular inventory, we photograph them so we can feature the most current and accurate representation.
