Product Description

The Small Shell Pedestal Brass is a highly desirable, pedestal-style kaleidoscope with two interchangeable and independently turning wheels created in a stained glass technique. One of the wheels is composed of locally collected shells (from Mashpee, Cape Cod) for their lovely textures and pearlescence. The second wheel consists of highly reflective, textured dichroic glass.

The majority of the image you see as you look through its eyepiece is created by the primary wheel, or the one closest to your eye, and the secondary wheel provides background or accent image. When you unscrew the knob holding the wheels and trade out the wheels front-to-back, you are rewarded with an entirely different kaleidocopic view.* The teardrop eyepiece affords a pristine view of the 8-point mandala. It is available in a 3-mirror system, and a 2-mirror is available upon request.

The kaleidoscope tube itself is 9" long x 1.5" diameter, and the wheels are 3" in diameter. It is attached with a swivel to its custom walnut wooden stem which is in turn attached to a brass filligree base. The entire kaleidoscope is 11.25" tall. None of the brass components of this kaleidoscope will ever tarnish, due to a sophisticated metal finishing process.

*You can also purchase other add-on wheels to make this kaleidoscope even more interchangeable:

and store your extra wheels in this Sm Wheel Rack-Walnut.

Jon Greene's "Floret" kaleidoscope with Shell & Dichroic wheels (00:34)
The Floret Shell Brass is a highly desirable, handheld brass kaleidoscope with two interchangeable and independently turning wheels created in a stained glass technique. One of the wheels is composed of local (Mashpee, Cape Cod) shells chosen for their textural and pearlescent qualities, and the second wheel consists of highly reflective, textured dichroic glass, which, in combination, produces a visual extravaganza of intense color. The usual response from a first-time viewer is a gasp and an exclamation of delight. The majority of the image you see as you look through its eyepiece is created by the primary wheel, or the one closest to your eye, and the secondary wheel provides background or accent image. When you unscrew the knob holding the wheels and trade out the wheels front-to-back, you are rewarded with an entirely different kaleidocopic view.* The teardrop eyepiece affords a pristine view of the 8-point mandala. It is available in a 3-mirror system, but a 2-mirror is available upon request. The kaleidoscope itself is 9" long x 1.5" diameter, and the wheels are 3" in diameter. When sitting on its custom "Swiss cheese" walnut wooden base, the kaleidoscope is 6" tall. None of the brass components of this kaleidoscope will ever tarnish, due to a sophisticated metal finishing process. *You can also purchase other add-on wheels to make this kaleidoscope even more interchangeable: 3" Wheel-Agate Brass 3" Wheel-Millefiore Brass 3" Wheel-Stained Glass Brass 3" Wheel-Shell Brass and store your extra wheels in this Sm Wheel Rack Walnut.
