Pedestal Kaleidoscope in Blue/Green/Purple Stained Glass
Kathleen uses a stained glass with beautifully rich blues, greens and purples for the body of this kaleidoscope which is constructed with decorative soldering into an equilateral triangle set on a clear glass pedestal. She connects the clear glass pedestal base to the body of the kaleidoscope with her very decorative soldering work.
The rotating glass object cell is filled with pieces of glass in different colors, shapes, sizes and textures. Kathleen adds thin glass strips and round bands to add an extra element of color and structure to the kaleidoscopic images. The combination of this 3-mirror system and the dry chamber object cell allow for widely varying, beautiful interior images. Listen to the contents of the object cell tumble around as the images change.
The kaleidoscope measures approximately 8-1/4" tall x 3-1/2" wide at the base and 7-1/2" deep (from the object cell to the eye piece end).
