“Kiyomi” – Pure Beauty
The barrel of “Kiyomi” is cover in a beautiful Cherry wood veneer with a hand rubbed finish. It has a fluid filled object cell with a black background. The sides of the rotatable object cell are lined with dichroic filters. This creates an ever changing backdrop of luminous color when viewed with a strong light source. The bright image has been created with hand lamp worked Italian glass canes by Shelley Knapp. Shelley has also included a touch of dichroic glass in the object cell. By using techniques that she has developed over the past 30 years she is able to achieve a spectacular image. The formation of each new six pointed vision is intensified with a magnification lens and is truly breathtaking. This is one of Randy’s favorite images. “Kiyomi” is enjoyed with variety of different light sources. “Kiyomi” will brighten your life with “Pure Beauty”.
This lovely kaleidoscope measures 7-1/2" long x 2-3/8" in diameter x 2.5" tall when sitting on its custom wooden base.
