SuZoo - Harbor Seal is the creation of Sue Rioux who combined her two life-long passions--the creation of collectible glass kaleidoscopes and animals--in this adorable series of kaleidoscopes she aptly names "SuZoo".
She designed each version to be palm-sized, and created this version from 10 strips of aqua blue glass with a white swirl pattern throughout. The glass pieces are soldered together and decorated with dots of solder, all of which are also finished with her signature patina, resulting in a copper effect, also on the eyepiece end. On the base end, she has chosen a lively, reflective piece of dichroic glass. The oil cell consists of a variety of glass and baubles and of course, the playful white harbor seal.
This is a perfect gift choice when space is a concern because it stands on its eyepiece end, and it's a kaleidoscope that kids of all ages will enjoy. It measures approximately 5-3/4" long x 1-3/4" in diameter.
