Kaleidoscope - Ode to Matisse by Jamalee Moret in collaboration with Sherry and Stephen Hopkins
A handmade mid-range fired ceramic bodied kaleidoscope impressed with leaf imagery inspired by the work of Henri Matisse. Matisse was a French artist who, when ill health in his final years prevented him from painting, created an important body of work in the medium of cut paper collage.
An internal 2-mirror system creates a large single 6-point mandala image with a significant size and brightly colored images. Inside the smooth turning liquid filled object cell you will find custom lamp-worked glass, beads, dichroic film, gemstones, crystals, metals and fabrics.
A visual delight indeed!
This kaleidoscope measures approximately 8-1/4" tall by 3" in diameter.
