Scopes I have for sale can be found in my Artfire shop in the Kaleidoscopes section.
I loaded nice large photos here. If you have a slow connection, be patient.
Scroll down to the bottom of this page for a few videos of this scope. Including one of the insides in motion.
I've been trying to make kaleidoscopes that are not only fun to use, but are also fine works of art. Art you can play with.
Well... the practice was worth it. I pulled my cartoon guys back in front of me and reworked them. This time they looked much better.
Meanwhile, a glass artist just happened to contact me asking if I had scrap clay canes for her to play with. And offered some scrap glass in exchange! I hit the jack pot. I'd been asking glass artists for quite some time now to save me shards, chips, less than perfect pieces. All of which are fantastic in the chamber of a kaleidoscope. This was the first person who was happy to trade. And she sent me two big batches of stuff.
Now this scope uses mineral oil in the chamber. It does act as a buffer for the stuff inside, but it's pretty thin.
|Enjoy the view inside set to some cool jazz.|
