Sparky is a kaleidoscope made of the Kittelsons' fused and slumped glass, utilizing a 3-mirror, 6-point mirror system. Its finely machined metal end turns very smoothly, and the very vivid 3-mirror interior image is a result of Peggy's signature and masterful lamp-worked glass pieces in a variety of shapes, textures, and colors, absolutely exquisite in every detail and designed to complement its barrel color. Unique to this particular kaleidoscope are fine black lines, seeming to radiate from individual points of the central image and extend into the eyepiece, created by the placement of one black line on one crease of the mirror. It measures 8.5" long x 1.75" in diameter, and 2.25" tall when standing on its own walnut stand.
This kaleidoscope is available in a very large variety of glass colors, such as: Berry Mix, Black, Blue Green, Cobalt Blue, Carnival Cranberry, Lavender, Gold Hunter, Mauve Sorbet, Mediterranean Blue, Pink Parfait, Purple, Red, White, and Yellow. Textured glass colors include: Brown, Caribbean Blue, Cream, Flame, Lavender, Moss Green, and Flame (Red/Yellow/Orange).
If you don't see your preferred glass color, we can order it for you.
If this particular kaleidoscope style is not currently in stock, please be aware that the exact coloration and/or texture of exterior 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, changes can occur in the kiln.
Each time we receive new kaleidoscope styles for our regular inventory, we photograph them so we can feature the most current and accurate representation.
