Carolyn Bennett began her career as a kaleidoscope artist in 1978. She considers kaleidoscopes a contemporary art form and is known as one of the pioneers of the modern kaleidoscope movement having won multiple awards for her kaleidoscope designs. The discovery of an ever-unfolding world of color, art, philosophy, and beauty within the kaleidoscope continues to inspire her – even now as she enjoys a semi-retirement.
As of 2019, C. Bennett Scopes are now exclusively handcrafted by Lisa Hill of Cape Kaleidoscopes in Saco, Maine. Lisa is proud to continue the C. Bennett Scopes line including both Carolyn’s original artwork and many new designs. The kaleidoscope’s fascination is timeless and its intrigue is universal. No one ever outgrows a kaleidoscope!
