January 2018 - the first presentation of the new year from Charles Karadimos. This is 'ParaCone', a limited edition of 32 pieces in a variety of colors made using hand-rolled glass which is over 30 years old and is no longer available.
This offering is for one of 5 pieces done in a blue/white, numbered 29 in the edition of 32, signed and dated by the artist.
The slumped glass body of this kaleidoscope is the perfect size and shape for extended viewing pleasure. A tapered two-mirror system produces perfect 9-point symmetry. The free-turning dry object cell contains lampworked glass plus several dry ampules to produce an infinite number of beautiful images.
The interior and exterior are color coordinated.
7.75“ tall x 2.75" wide at the base.
