This unique kaleidoscope body is made with a 3D printer, a departure from the traditional slumped glass body that Charles has become known for.
The scope features 6 multi-layer fused glass cabochons inlaid on the body. The interior is very much the traditional Charles Karadimos style with its beautifully random 8-point images produced by a tapered two-mirror system. All of the glass in the free-turning dry object cell is delicately lamp-worked for greater detail.
Measuring approximately 6" tall by 3" at the widest point. Each scope takes approximately 15 hours to print.
"Kaleidoscopes represent what is important in a harmonious life - great diversity living together in one place, creating order out of chaos." ~ Charles Karadimos
