Shimmering golden sand colored stained glass with hints of pinks, greens and blues, forms the rectangular exterior of 'La Playa', another beautiful kaleidoscope handmade by Sue Rioux in her Kennebunkport, Maine studio. Keeping with 'the beach' theme, Sue adorned 'La Playa' with a small sea shell on top and a copper colored starfish on each side. Additionally, the turning oil filled barrel contains tiny sea shells, pieces of colorful dichroic film and beads and baubles in varying shades of blues representing the ocean waters.
The interior mirror system of this scope is also unique as it features a reprint of one of Sue's own paintings creating a special interior aura surrounding the mandala.
Signed by the artist "Sue Rioux 2017 La Playa" this kaleidoscope is 3" tall (on its attached footed stand) by 9" long by 4 1/2" wide.
