Kaleidoscope - 'Globescope' by Frank and Janet Higgins
Globescope is a unique handcrafted kaleidoscope by Frank and Janet Higgins featuring an turning oil-filled globe containing lampworked and dichroic glass elements as the object cell. The body of the scope is a turqouise/cranberry reverse painted glass with decorative metalwork.
The 3-mirror system offers fully-tiled 45/45/90 degree wallpaper-type images with an underlying square geometry against a light background. The pattern changes as the glass globe is turned and continue to move after the globe has stopped rotating.
Dimensions are approximately 7-3/4" long by 2-3/4" wide at the globe end by 1-3/4" tall.
