Pedestal Kaleidoscope in Blue Stained Glass
This kaleidoscope is lovely on display, and even lovelier on the interior. For the body of the kaleidoscope, Kathleen chose a blue pearlescent stained glass with hints of purple running through it. The body is constructed with decorative soldering into an equilateral triangle set on a clear glass pedestal. The rotating glass wheels are made by fusing onto them several pieces of glass in different colors, shapes, sizes and textures. The combination of this 3-mirror system and the wheels allows for widely varying, beautiful interior images. She connected the clear glass base to the body of the kaleidoscope with her very decorative soldering work.
The kaleidoscope measures approximately 10" tall x 4" wide and 8-1/2" deep.
