Chikako Ishida's "Silent Night" Kaleidoscope
The body of this kaleidoscope is a 10 sided cone of clear patterned glass tapered at the eye piece end. Each of the 10 pieces of glass are soldered together with silver solder. The interior 2 mirror system creates a 6 point mandala pattern in blue, green, white and silver set against a textured piece of opaque glass to add additional depth to the interior imagery.
The scope measures 3-1/2" tall by 2-1/4" at the object cell and 1-1/4" at the eye piece cell.
