Another beautiful one of a kind design by Sue Rioux, handmade in her Kennebunkport Maine studio.
Ice Palace is a 2 mirror kaleidoscope creating a single mandala interior image. Sue used dichroic glass in place of mirror on the 3rd side creating a shimmering tunnel effect along the length of the interior view surrounding the mandala. The turning object cell end uses dichroic glass pieces and glass beads for an exquisite viewer experience!
Adorned with clear glass rods and a white glass stone, the exterior kaleidoscope body uses a textured iridescent silver paper sitting directly under the glass. You'll love the hints of pink, green, yellow and blue along all 4 sides of the kaleidoscope's body. This kaleidoscope is finished with Sue's signature patina that she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a copper effect on the glass barrel, the eyepiece end, and other adornments.
Signed by the artist "Sue Rioux 2017 Ice Palace" this kaleidoscope is 3" tall (on its attached footed stand) by 9-3/4" long by 2-1/2" wide.
