Kaleidoscope - Into the Woods #2 by Sherry and Stephen Hopkins
Into the Woods is a kaleidoscope handcrafted with staved and book-matched Zebrawood. The eye piece and object cell ends are made from a complementary Maple wood enhancing the exterior beauty of this handheld kaleidoscope.
An internal 2-mirror system creates a large single 6-point mandala image with an instant WOW factor given its significant size.
The smooth turning liquid filled object cell features a one-of-a-kind combination of dichroic glass, custom lamp-worked glass, beads, natural stones, gemstones, crystals, metals and fabrics with an emphasis on the colors turquoise, blue and green. The Hopkins added a slice of Prickly Pear Cactus fiber to the object chamber which adds a beautiful and unique lacy effect to the imagery.
This kaleidoscope measures approximately 8" tall by 3" in diameter.
