Miraposa is a stunning work of art in stained and dichroic glass, offering two distinct mirror systems, an equilateral 2-mirror system and an isosceles 3-mirror system, thereby, two kaleidoscopes in one. It has an iridescent blue butterfly, stained glass exterior. The glass turning barrel, adorned with multicolored and very reflective handmade fused dichroic glass pieces, spins freely and easily, providing the viewer with magnificent images in a vast array of colors. The entire piece is finished with Sue's signature patina that she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a copper effect on the butterfly, eyepiece end, four little feet, and other adornments.
This is a kaleidoscope to cherish for a lifetime. It measures 9-1/2" long x 1-3/4" wide x 5-1/2" tall, and stands on its custom glass bead "feet".
If this particular kaleidoscope style is not currently in stock, please be aware that the exact coloration and/or texture of the exterior glass 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.
