Charles Karadimos is an award winning artist who has been making glass kaleidoscopes since 1980. He has been featured on CBS News Sunday Morning and in various books and magazines. His work is exhibited in museums, galleries, and private collections throughout the world. Will your home be next?
The exterior of this kaleidoscope is multi-layered fused dichroic on red glass, all encased in clear, and then slumped into an easy to hold pod shape. Beautifully random 10-point images are produced by a tapered two-mirror system.
All of the glass in the free-turning dry object cell is delicately lamp-worked for greater detail. A fused dichroic treatment as part of the object cell acts as a softening filter behind the image.
Edition #4 stands 6” tall, with the weight typical of a paperweight.
This is one of the last available of an edition of 10.
"Kaleidoscopes represent what is important in a harmonious life - great diversity living together in one place, creating order out of chaos." ~ Charles Karadimos
